Lox on a Biscuit

Recorded July 2, 2011. This easy, fast appetizer was invented by Laura about 10 years ago. It combines lox, cream cheese, and freshly baked frozen biscuits. A Jewish Southern snack. By a New York State farm girl. What a country!
3 frozen biscuits (such as Pillsbury® Buttermilk)
4 oz thinly sliced smoked salmon (lox)
4 oz softened cream cheese
1 oz thinly sliced red onion (optional)
1 T capers (optional)
Bake the biscuits following package directions. Let cool, and split each. Spread the insides heavily with cream cheese. Place four small pieces of lox on each half. Top with optional onion and a few capers. Cut each half into four pieces. Makes 24 bite-size snacks. They go fast! Bake extra biscuits just in case.
