  • baking sheet
  • parchment paper or silicone baking mat
  • spoon
  • small bowl
  • rubber spatula



  • Move oven rack to middle position and preheat to 350 degrees F. Line cookie sheet with parchment or silicone baking mat; set aside.
  • In a small bowl, add cream cheese, 2 tablespoons powdered sugar, and vanilla. Use a rubber spatula to mix until combined and no lumps remain.

  • To make glaze add remaining 2 tablespoons powdered sugar and milk to a small bowl. Mix until smooth, adding more milk or sugar to reach desired consistency. Use a fork or spoon to drizzle glaze over biscuits. Serve immediately.
