Have you ever enjoyed eating delicious homemade cream cheese biscuits? Here’s a step-by-step tutorial to show you how to make your own.
This recipe for Cream Cheese Biscuits couldn’t be any easier. I think you will be pleasantly surprised at how quickly these biscuits come together… and of course, cream cheese seems to make just about anything better!
The first step when making these yummy cream cheese biscuits is to combine all of the ingredients together (except for the buttermilk) in a food processor and pulse until the mixture resembles course meal. Transfer the flour mixture to a large mixing bowl and stir in the buttermilk until combined. The dough may appear slightly dry.
Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead briefly until dough is soft and smooth. You may need to keep adding a little flour from time to time to prevent the dough from sticking to your hands or work surface. Shape into a round ball.
With a lightly floured rolling pin and working surface, roll dough out to about 3/4 inch thickness.
Cut out biscuits with a biscuit cutter (I used a medium size) and transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
One recipe makes sixteen to seventeen medium size round biscuits. *** Unbaked cut biscuits can be refrigerated on a baking sheet, covered with plastic wrap, for one day. To finish, preheat oven and bake as directed.
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees F and bake the Cream Cheese Biscuits until light brown, approximately 12 – 15 minutes. When finished baking, transfer to a wire rack, brush the tops with melted butter and let cool for 5 minutes. Serve warm.
These Cream Cheese Biscuits are delicious simply served with butter, however, they are great with all kinds of jams or jellies too. Plus, they are perfect for making a batch of homemade biscuits and gravy for breakfast.
Happy biscuit baking!
