  1. Heat oven to 450°F. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray.
  2. In small bowl, stir cream cheese, 1 tablespoon sugar and 1 tablespoon milk until smooth; set aside. In large bowl, stir Bisquick mix, 1/4 cup softened butter and 2 tablespoons sugar until mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Stir in 2/3 cup milk until stiff dough forms.
  3. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Make a shallow well in center of each with fingers and back of spoon. Fill each well with about 1 teaspoon cream cheese mixture.
