Earleen Lillegard's been making her savory flowers for well over 25 years now. "They're always a hit, whether I take them to church gatherings or make them for my grandchildren," she pens from Prescott, Arizona. "In addition to the filling I share here, the biscuits taste good when stuffed with egg salad or vegetables.—Earleen Lillegard, Prescott, Arizona
- 1 tube (12 ounces) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
- 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
- 2 tablespoons butter, softened
- 1 teaspoon dill weed
- 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
- Dash salt
- Dash white pepper
- Separate each biscuit into three equal layers. Place 1 in. apart on greased baking sheets. With a kitchen shears or sharp knife, cut eight slits a third of the way toward center to form petals. Make a deep thumbprint in the center of each.
- In a small bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Place heaping teaspoonfuls of creamed cheese mixture in the center of each biscuit. Bake at 375° for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm or at room temperature. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.
