The other day I was in a bit of a mad scramble to pull something together to bring to a potluck supper. I had thought about bringing scones. My 'fridge was nearly empty, but I did have about half of a container of cream cheese, plus plenty of butter, on hand. But no milk and no eggs. And I was running tight on time.

The hostess had mentioned she'd be offering gazpacho and that there would be about 15 people coming. My thoughts started whirling as I was rummaging through my cupboards and somehow I wondered if I could make a biscuit using cream cheese. Finding nothing in the cookbooks on my shelf I turned to the Internet to search and in a flash was finding recipes for "cream cheese biscuits."

I decided using a mini muffin pan would be perfect, since plates tend to get loaded up at potlucks and sometimes all you really want is a bite of this, and a bite of that. It all came together quickly and in the end the morsels were delicious with just a hint of tangy cream cheese and not too dry.
