Let's Make It
Heat oven to 450°F.
Combine first 5 ingredients in large bowl. Cut in cream cheese and 1/4 cup (4 Tbsp.) butter with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Add buttermilk; stir just until mixture forms soft dough.
Place dough on lightly floured surface; sprinkle lightly with additional flour. Roll into 1/2-inch-thick rectangle; fold crosswise in half. Repeat rolling and folding 3 more times.
Roll dough into 8x6-inch rectangle; cut into 12 squares. Place, 1/2 inch apart, on baking sheet.
Bake 12 to 15 min. or until golden brown. Melt remaining butter; brush onto tops of biscuits. Cool slightly.
Make a well in the center of the flour mixture before adding the buttermilk. Add the buttermilk all at once, then stir just until blended. Don't worry if small pieces of cream cheese remain in the dough before rolling it out, cutting into squares and baking as directed.
Practice mindful eating by savoring the flavor of these biscuits and sticking to the recommended serving size.
Prepare recipe as directed, stirring 1 cup KRAFT Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese and 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives into the flour mixture before cutting in the cream cheese and butter.
Combine dry ingredients. Coarsely chop 2 oz. BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate; stir into flour mixture along with 3/4 cup chopped dried cherries. Add buttermilk, then continue as directed, brushing tops of dough squares evenly with additional 1 Tbsp. buttermilk, and sprinkling evenly with 2 Tbsp. coarse sugar before baking as directed.
