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.

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.
