  • 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.

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.
