Tender little biscuits so incredibly flaky with millions of layers that melt in your mouth like some exquisite pastry. They’re so easy to make in your food processor!
Recipe type: Side Dish
Serves: 20 small biscuits
- 8 ounces full fat cream cheese, softened
- ⅔ cup butter, softened
- 1 cup self-rising flour*, plus more for dusting
*To make your own self-rising flour whisk 1 cup of flour with 1 + ½ teaspoons baking powder plus ¼ teaspoon salt.
- Pulse together the cream cheese, butter and flour in a food processor until combined, about 10 pulses, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl halfway through.
- Turn out onto a piece of lightly floured parchment paper and pat it into a disc. Refrigerate 1 hour.
- Place an oven rack on the highest rung and preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Sprinkle a work surface with flour, unwrap the dough and sprinkle the top and a rolling pin lightly with flour.
- Roll out to ½-inch thick and cut out biscuits with a 1 + ¼-inch size biscuit cutter. Place them on the baking sheet about an inch apart.
- Stick the scraps together and make more biscuits. If you can’t fit them all on the baking sheet refrigerate and bake them in turns.
- Bake about 14 minutes on the top rack until golden and puffed, rotating the pan halfway through. You can brush the tops with melted butter if you like.
- They’re best eaten fresh and warm!
