Make cream cheese coffee-shop pastries at home with an easy foolproof recipe.

Ingredients

1
package (3 oz) cream cheese
2
tablespoons firm butter or margarine
2
cups Original Bisquick™ mix
1/3
cup milk
1
egg yolk
1
package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/3
cup sugar
1/2
teaspoon almond extract
1
egg white, slightly beaten
2
tablespoons sliced almonds
2
teaspoons sugar

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 425°F. In medium bowl, cut 3-oz package of cream cheese and the butter into Bisquick mix, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until mixture looks like fine crumbs. Stir in milk and egg yolk.
  • 2 Place dough on surface well dusted with Bisquick mix; gently roll in Bisquick mix to coat. Knead 10 times. Roll dough into 16x8-inch rectangle.
  • 3 In small bowl, mix 8-oz package of cream cheese, 1/3 cup sugar and the almond extract until smooth. Spread cream cheese filling lengthwise over half of dough to within 1/4 inch of edge; carefully fold dough over filling. Brush egg white over top. Sprinkle with almonds and 2 teaspoons sugar. Cut into 4 (4-inch) squares; cut squares diagonally in half to form 8 triangles. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  • 4 Bake about 14 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm or cold. Cover; refrigerate any remaining triangles.
