Today is "Spring Fling" Foodie Friday!
To Cathy of The Stylish House, thank you for the award! You are so sweet to remember me. I will feature it with my Sunday Favorite post for Chari's meme! I can't wai to do all of these wonderful things to complete this week!
What does one do when there's simply no time and a hungry family is starting to revolt? You bribe them with an easy but deadly yummy dessert!
Got kids that would rather not use a plate to hold their dessert? Make the container edible!
I call this my "Sweetly Kissed" Biscuit Cups because... it is easy to make and oh so yummy! Each biscuit dough disc from a can of Pilsbury Grands were flattened and molded on to a cupcake pan and filled with a delectable cream cheese filling:
Preheat oven to 400 deg
"Sweetly Kissed" Filling
1 brick of Kraft Neufchatel cheese or 1/3 less fat cream cheese
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp cinnamon
Blend together until well mixed. Taste and adjust.
Spoon into each biscuit cup dough and bake for 10 minutes or until puffed and lightly browned.
Take it out and transfer onto a cookie sheet. Bake for another 2-3 minutes on 400 deg.
Serve slightly warm topped with a tall tower of low-fat whipped cream and cinnamon sprinkles. Any kid can just grab it and eat it without fear of needing to stay put. Why because they'll eat the cream off first and eat inside out! Yum! Of course, you can do the following presentation if you are a proper consumer. (Nah, after I took this picture, I ate a strawberry, took a bite while holding the "cup" in one hand, strawberry, a bite and so forth and so on... You think you can handle that?) :P
I also guarantee you that when you take a bite of the whole filling and biscuit with or without whipped cream is like a "sweet kiss"! (mwah!)
You like the plate? You've all seen it! It's Corelle's "Shadow Iris". I've had this set since 1997 and they all still look fairly new even with three voracious eaters I call my children. ;-)
TABLESCAPING IDEA: ("Brain" is getting hungry over this one) In light of today's post, compose a buffet style finger foods and use it as your centerpiece! Instead of flowers, use cut fruits to bring a fresh factor to the tablescape. Instead of dinner plates, just use salad plates for portion control and talk your guests ear off about how much fun you had putting it together for them! For a favor, give them a copy of the recipes on individual cards with the picture of the corresponding dishes.
A big thank you to our host, Gollum for making us welcome Spring with today's "Spring Fling" Foodie Friday!
