“Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeno peppers adds a little zing to Wheat and Cheese Spirals. You may be fooled when you bite into them. They have the tender texture of yeast breads, but are actually made like biscuits. Serve them with soups or salads. On their own, they’re great as snacks.”
15 spirals

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a mixing bowl stir together the whole wheat flour, the baking powder, and the salt.
  2. Cut in 1/2 cup butter till mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Make a well in the center. Combine egg and milk; add all at once to dry ingredients. Stir just till dough clings together. Knead gently on a lightly floured surface for 12 to 15 STROKES. Roll dough into a 15 x 6 inch rectangle.
  4. Sprinkle cheese over dough. Fold dough in half lengthwise to make a 15 x 3 inch rectangle. Cut into fifteen 3 x 2 inch strips. Holding a strip at both ends, twist in opposite directions twice to form a spiral.
