    Daisy Biscuits

    3 ounces cream cheese
    1/4 cup butter or margarine
    2 1/2 cups self-rising flour
    3/4 cup milk
    2 1/2 tablespoons orange marmalade
    2 1/2 tablespoons raspberry jam

    Cut cream cheese and butter into flour with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add milk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Turn dough out onto a floured surface, and knead 3 or 4 times.

    Roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness; cut with a 2-inch biscuit cutter. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Make 6 slits through dough around edges of each biscuit to 1/4 inch from center. Press thumb in center of each biscuit, leaving an indentation. Spoon 1/2 teaspoon marmalade or jam into each biscuit indentation. Bake at 450 degrees F for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.

    Yields 28 biscuits.
