These heavenly looking holiday biscuits will add a festive touch to your entertaining. They're also super gifts, so bake a double batch and share their tasty goodness!

Makes about 1 dozen biscuits

2-1/4 cups biscuit baking mix
2/3 cup milk
3 tablespoons butter, melted
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. In a large bowl, combine biscuit baking mix and milk, stirring until a dough forms.
  2. Lightly flour a work surface and knead dough until smooth. With a lightly floured rolling pin, roll out dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Using a lightly floured angel-shaped cookie cutter, cut out dough and place cut-outs 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets.
  3. In a small bowl, combine butter and Parmesan cheese; mix well then brush over angel shapes. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until light golden. Serve immediately, or remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

TIP:?If you don't want to make all the biscuits at once, this dough will keep in the refrigerator for several days. When ready to use, roll it out, cut it, and let it sit 15 minutes before baking as directed.
