Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put flour in a bowl. Cut in cheese spread and margarine with a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly.
  2. Sprinkle cold water over flour mixture. Stir with a fork until moistened.
  3. Shape into a ball. Cover and chill at least 4 hours.
  4. Divide dough in half and keep one portion chilled. Roll remaining portion to 1/4 inch thick on a well-floured surface.
  5. Cut into rounds with a 3-inch biscuit cutter.
  6. Place 1/4 teaspoon jelly on the center of each round. Moisten edges with water. Fold in half and press edges with a fork to seal - make sure edges are well sealed!
  7. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Repeat with remaining portion of dough.
  8. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Transfer to wire racks to cool.
