  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Mix flour and baking powder in large bowl. Cut in cream cheese with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in shredded cheese. Add milk; stir until mixture forms soft dough.

  4. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.

  • Pour in milk all at once and mix briefly - don't worry if small pieces of cream cheese remain.
  • Substitute:
  • For extra flavour and a bit of kick, prepare using Kraft Habanero Heat Shredded Cheese.
  • Food Facts:
  • Use only regular cream cheese since the light variety will produce lumpy biscuits.
  • Storage Know-How:
  • Freeze cooled biscuits up to 2 weeks in resealable freezer-weight plastic bag. Or, wrap individually in plastic wrap before freezing.

when making this I had no block cream cheese so I had to add 3/4 tub that is all I had, I did find that I had to put more milk in as it was so dry , added about 1/4 cup more,On the whole good but needs salt and herbs.Will Make again . oh the taste of the seasonings could be because I have a bad cold, the rest of the family gave it 5 stars so it must be really tasty
