Cream Cheese Biscuits

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.
