    Table of Contents

    Ingredients:

    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 tablespoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into small cubes
    • 4 ounces cream cheese, cold and cut into small cubes
    • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
    • 3/4 cup buttermilk, cold
    • 1 tablespoon honey (optional, for a touch of sweetness)
    • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives (optional, for added flavor)

    Instructions:

    Preheat the Oven:

    Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

    Mix Dry Ingredients:

    In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

    Add Butter and Cream Cheese:

    Add the cold, cubed butter and cream cheese to the dry ingredients.

    Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, cut the butter and cream cheese into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.

    Add Cheddar Cheese:

    Gently fold in the shredded cheddar cheese, ensuring it is evenly distributed throughout the mixture.

    Combine with Buttermilk:

    Pour in the cold buttermilk and, if using, add honey and chopped chives.

    Mix the ingredients until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; the dough should be slightly sticky.

    Shape the Biscuits:

    Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Pat it into a rectangle about 1 inch thick.

    Using a biscuit cutter or a round glass, cut out biscuits and place them on the prepared baking sheet.

    Bake:

    Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown on top.

    Serve Warm:

    Remove from the oven and let the biscuits cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet.

    Serve them warm.

    Optional: Brush with Butter:

    For an extra touch of richness, you can brush the warm biscuits with melted butter before serving.

    Enjoy:

    These tender, fluffy cream cheese cheddar biscuits are best enjoyed fresh out of the oven. Serve them as a delightful side to soups, stews, or enjoy them on their own!

    These biscuits, with the creamy goodness of cream cheese and the savory kick of cheddar, are sure to become a favorite at your table. Perfect for breakfast, brunch, or as a comforting side dish for any meal!
