Best Biscuits Ever.

I know I know…. that title might be a little strong, but, in my opinion, these really truly are the best biscuits ever. Studded with cream cheese and butter. These tall flakey biscuits will turn you away from canned biscuits forever.


Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner. Heck, with a little local honey, I even eat these for dessert. They are that good.

The key to a light flaky biscuit, is to refrain from over mixing or rolling the dough. After the dough barely comes together, simply turn out on to a floured surface, and pat into shape with your fingers.

And yes, I am typing this with a fresh, warm, just out of the oven biscuit in hand. My love for them runs deep.

4 ounces cold Butter
4 ounces cold Cream Cheese
1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
2 cups AP Flour
1 Tbsp Sugar
1 Tbsp Baking Powder
¾ tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Salt
1 cup + 1 Tbsp Cold Buttermilk (homemade buttermilk)

This recipe yields 10-12 biscuits, but I always double it and store the leftover biscuits in the freezer for later.

Note: If you do not have whole wheat flour, just substitute with AP flour.


  1. Preheat oven to 450°.
  2. Roughly dice Butter and Cream Cheese. Place in the freezer until needed.
  3. With a whisk or fork, stir together Flours, Sugar, Baking Powder, Baking Soda, and Salt.
  4. Add cold butter and cream cheese to the dry ingredients.
  5. With a pastry cutter, or two knives, cut butter and cream cheese into flour until pea sized. FullSizeRender
  6. Pour in buttermilk. IMG_6995
  7. Stir until the dough just comes together. Do not over mix.
  8. Turn dough out onto floured surface.
  9. Pat dough into a rectangle with fingers. The dough should measure about two inches tall.
  10. Using a biscuit cutter, cookie cutter, or knife – cut biscuits to desired shape.
  11. Place on baking sheet lined with a slipat or parchment paper. No need to grease the pan. IMG_7007
  12. Bake for 15 minutes or until biscuits are tall and golden brown.
  13. Enjoy as an egg sandwich, biscuits and gravy, or simply smothered in butter and honey. Yumm!


Don’t have buttermilk? No need to fret! Just add a tablespoon of white vinegar to a cup of milk. Voíla, Buttermilk!
