I made a batch of these tasty biscuits this morning. The prep work took only as much time as to heat the oven and 10 minutes after we had piping hot cream cheese biscuits to nibble on with breakfast. Yum!
Do use real almond extract and never the fake flavoring. It just isn’t the same!
I am thinking next time I might add a few diced almonds in for additional flavor and texture as well.
Almond Cream Cheese Sweet Biscuits
2 cups Heart Smart Bisquick® mix
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup melted unsalted butter
2/3 cup low-fat milk
1 tsp pure almond extract
Cream Cheese Topping-
4-ounces low-fat cream cheese
2 Tbsp granulated sugar
1 Tbsp low-fat milk
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 Tbsp low fat milk
1/4 tsp pure almond extract
Heat your oven to 450°, use convection setting if your oven has it. Line a cookie tray with parchment paper.
Get out 1 large and 2 medium mixing bowls. For the biscuit dough, with a whisk gently mix all the ingredients in the large bowl until combined. Divide into 12 portions, about 1 Tbsp each (a disher works well to do this), on the prepared baking sheet. Using a large spoon coated with cooking spray, press a rounded indention in each biscuit (you will need to respray the spoon often).
In one of the medium bowls combine the cream cheese and sugar together, then whisk in the milk. Divide between the biscuits, filling the indention. It is about 1 teaspoon per biscuit, give or take.
Bake for 10 minutes or until turning golden brown on the edges.
Meanwhile, mix up the glaze in the last bowl, stirring until smooth. After bringing the hot biscuits out drizzle the glaze on top and let sit for a couple minutes, then enjoy!
