Easy Cheesy Biscuits Wreath Appetizer

I don’t know about you, but we still have lots of holiday entertaining left to do! Not that there’s anything wrong with that — it’s one of my favorite times of the year.

I just love trying out new recipes and sharing them with family and friends, like these yummy and easy cheese biscuits. Formed into a fun wreath shape, they make a perfect holiday party appetizer!

If you haven’t picked up a copy of the annual Walmart Holiday Entertaining Guide, keep your eyes peeled in stores or you can download a copy right here. It’s full of holiday entertaining recipe ideas and suggestions, and it was my inspiration for this Easy Cheesy Biscuits Wreath Appetizer.

Originally dubbed the Pizza Biscuit Wreath, I opted to forgo the pepperoni inside the cheese biscuits for a delicious meatless version. But you can certainly stuff a few slices of pepperoni in with the cheese if you’d prefer.

Making the cheese biscuits is as simple as flattening out two cans of Pillsbury Grands Jr. Golden Layers and laying a cube of your favorite cheese inside. I went with Colby-Jack, like the original recipe, but any type will do. I think string cheese would be another great choice.

You then fold the biscuit around the cheese, pinch the seams closed to seal the filling inside, and place them seam-side down on your baking tray in a wreath shape. Brush the tops with an egg wash, sprinkle on Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning, and bake.

The easy cheese biscuits are delicious on their own, but the wreath-shaped presentation with a small container of pizza sauce in the center really make this a fun party appetizer!

Easy Cheese Biscuits Wreath

Easy Cheese Biscuits Wreath

Yield: 10 servings
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes


  • 2 cans Pillsbury Grands Jr. Golden Layers buttermilk biscuits
  • 5 sticks Colby-Monterey Jack cheese or your favorite cheese, cut into 4 cubes
  • 60 small 1 1/2-inch slices pepperoni (optional)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 can (8-oz.) pizza sauce


  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Butter your baking sheet or give it a coating of cooking spray.
  3. Separate your biscuits into 10 biscuits from each pan. Flatten one out to about a 3-inch circle, and lay your cheese and/or pepperoni in the center. Wrap the biscuit dough around the filling and pinch the edges closed to seal the filling inside.
  4. Repeat for the remaining biscuits, setting each one seam-side down on your baking sheet in the shape of a wreath. You can either leave a 4-inch opening in the center for the pizza sauce bowl, or simply set an oven-safe ramekin in the center and build the wreath around it. Place 8 balls around the center, almost touching, followed by 12 balls around the outside.
  5. Brush the top of the dough balls with the egg, and sprinkle on the Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning.
  6. Bake at 375 degrees for 18-20 minutes. Meanwhile, warm the pizza sauce in a small microwaveable bowl. Microwave, loosely covered, on high for 45-60 seconds, until warm.
  7. Remove the wreath from the oven and transfer it to a serving platter. Fill the center bowl with pizza sauce. Serve warm.
