PAIGE MENGE/JUNIOR LEAGUE OF NASHVILLE

 

8 ounces cream cheese

2 (8 oZ cans) refrigerator flaky buttermilk biscuits

sugar

3/4 c sifted confectioners sugar

1-1/2 T fresh lemon juice

Cut the cream cheese into 48 cubes.  Separate each biscuit into 3 layers on a work surface.  Place 1 cream cheese cube on each biscuit layer and wrap the biscuits to enclose the cream cheese; pinch the edges to seal.  Roll in sugar and place on a lightly greased baking sheet.  Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.

Blend the confectioners' sugar and lemon juice in a small bowl.  Drizzle over the baked party bites.

FRESH STRAWBERRY SORBET

2/3 c sugar

2/3 c water

2 pints fresh strawberries

1/4 c lemon juice

Bring the sugar and water to a boil in a medium saucepan, stirring to dissolve the sugar.  Reduce the heat and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes.  Cool to room temperature and chill, covered, in the refrigerator.

Process the strawberries in a food processor fitted with the metal blade until pureed; measure 3 cups.  Stir in the sugar syrup and lemon juice.  Spoon into an ice cream freezer container and freeze according to the manufacturer's directions.

Serves 6
