creamy crab biscuits

So a few weekends ago, a few of my girl friends and I got together for one of our (many) bake-dates we've been having this summer.  We made these ah-mazzzzing "sausage biscuit things" that were just plain epic.  Seriously?  Words fail 'em.  And they're super super easy, but look quite nice even as an appetizer for a fancy smancy dinner party or even just a potluck with friends.

I decided to change 'em up a bit, though, and used crab instead of the sausage.  All you do is slap that slab on cream cheese in a bowl and mix it with a spoon to make it soft.  Then, dump in your bag of crab (yeah, yeah, I'm lame and cheap and used imitation...) and stir it all up.

Then, place the biscuit rounds (from a package...mmm, saturated fat) into cupcake tins, and form them to the pan to make a well in the middle.  Fill with the cream cheese and crab mixture, and then set it in the oven (350 degrees, please) for about 15 minutes or so, or until the edges of the biscuit are slightly browned.

I'm actually about to take these over to my friends' house this very instant for a girls night of girly drinks, desserts, appetizer-y foods, and swimming.  Nothin' like girl friends who you've known for nearly half of your life :)

How did they taste?

Pretty well! I actually was a little disappointed in them, though, but I think that was because by the time I ate one, it was cold. So I'd suggest heating them up....or eating them right from the oven :)
