Cream Cheese Biscuits

I had never heard of cream cheese biscuits before. I was browsing blogs looking for good recipes and I found this one. It looked so amazing that I had to try it. If you would like to see the original recipe click the link, I adapted it a little bit so I will post what I did.

8 oz cream cheese (I pulled out, thawed, and softened one of my frozen cream cheese blocks)
3/4 c butter (also frozen, thawed, and softened)
1 1/3 c flour
1 3/4 t baking powder
1/3 t salt

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cream together cream cheese and butter until smooth. Slowly add flour, baking powder, and salt and mix until it forms a ball. Turn out onto plastic wrap. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour (more time is ok too). Pull out and roll out or pat to about 1/2 - 1 inch thick. Cut dough into squares (you can  cut with a biscuit cutter if you want but that produces scraps you have do deal with and trust me they taste just as yummy in squares, and I think that they are just as cute). Put on baking sheet. Bake 10 - 12 minutes. You can brush butter on top if you want. I didn't feel that it was necessary. These are best served warm.

Pure Yumminess! These were very good. They were small so 4-6 looked like a side serving to me. I ate them with homemade strawberry jam and they were very good. My husband is slightly lactose intolerant so he couldn't eat very many but he thought that they were ok (he is not the cream cheese fanatic that I am :), I think that he said that they tasted like biscuits :)
