I usually think of biscuits as a breakfast food, but I baked these biscuits for dinner tonight. These Cream Cheese Biscuits are good at any meal, any time of day. The recipe I used has been adapted from Cooks Country Magazine.
Cream Cheese Biscuits
4 ounces cream cheese (cut into cubes and frozen for 30 minutes)
4 tablespoons butter (cut into cubes and frozen for 30 minutes)
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups cake flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup plus 1 tablespoon buttermilk
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Prepare a baking sheet by lining with parchment paper. In the bowl of a food processor, combine the cream cheese, butter, both flours, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Pulse until all is combined and resembles coarse meal. Pour the mixture into a large bowl and add the buttermilk; stir with a wooden spoon until combined. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead until dough comes together. Shape dough into an 8-inch by 6-inch rectangle. Cut into biscuits and place on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 12 - 15 minutes until golden brown.
This recipe makes 6 large biscuits. Add a little butter or jelly and you're all set for yummy.
