1-1/4 cups butter, melted
1 package (16 ounces, 18-inches x 14-inches sheet size) frozen phyllo dough, thawed
1/2 cups cranberry jelly
6 pieces bacon, fried until crisp
8 ounces Laughing Cow Cheese triangles cut into four portions.
1/4 cup finely diced jalapeno pepper


Take an individual phyllo sheet and brush it generously with melted butter (Keep remaining phyllo covered with waxed paper to avoid drying out.)
Using a sharp knife measure into three by three inch squares and place the squares butter side down into a 24 count mini muffin tin. Cut each slice of crisped bacon into 4 equal pieces and place one into each phyllo cup.
Top with a cube of cheese, 1/8 of a tsp of finely diced jalapeno pepper, and a 1/2 tsp of cranberry sauce.
Fold over to form a bundle and brush with more melted butter.
You can freeze these on the tray at this point and then, once frozen, remove to a freezer bag.
Bake at 400° for 10 minutes if defrosted, or 20 minutes if frozen or until golden brown. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Yield: 24
