For a friend's surprise party, I decided to try a new recipe and came up with this crispy bread topped with ham, olives and more. The savory ingredients in this irresistible appetizer blend so well that I'm always asked for the recipe.

These cheesy pinwheels are our favorite for Mother's day. No matter how many we bake, there are never any leftovers. The light cheddar tang complements the tomato flavor beautifully. They look complicated but are surprisingly easy to prepare. —Maggie Gassett, Hillsborough, New Hampshire
These oven-fresh biscuits will disappear from your table as quickly as it took to prepare them! But you won't mind, because you can easily whip up another batch. Serve them with fried chicken, at breakfast or as a savory snack.
I always try to have a supply of these appetizers on-hand in the freezer. If guests drop in, I just pull some out and reheat to serve. They work great as a snack, for brunch or along with a lighter lunch. —Linda Thompson, Southampton, Ontario
THE INGREDIENTS for this recipe are so simple and the results so spectacular, I'm always willing to share the secret.
It's actually a variation of a doughnut recipe I made years ago, using refrigerated biscuits. The best part of having this bread is tearing it apart and eating it warm.

I found this recipe a few years ago in a dairy cookbook, and it has become a family favorite. We milk 180 cows and have a large garden, so dishes like this that use both dairy products and fresh vegetables are welcome. My husband, Wayne, and our two children are mostly meat-and-potato eaters...but I don't hear any complaints when I make this bread!
"These light, golden puffs are super simple to make, and their flavor is oh-so-good," informs Wendy Chilton of Bookeland, Texas. "Their small size makes them easy to munch, and they're wonderful warm or cold."
