Gradually add remaining 1 1/4 cups powdered sugar to cream cheese mixture alternately with 2 tablespoons of the half-and-half, beating on high speed until frosting is smooth, creamy, and a little loose, about 1 minute, adding remaining 1 tablespoon half-and-half, 1 teaspoon at a time, if needed to reach desired consistency.

Drizzle half of the frosting over biscuit mixture in a slow cooker. (Cover remaining frosting and set aside until ready to serve.) Cover slow cooker; cook on LOW until the center of the casserole is set and biscuit bottoms are browned, 3 ½ to 4 hours. Drizzle casserole with remaining frosting; serve warm.
