Mini Cream Cheese Chive Biscuits

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup freshly chopped chives
  • 4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into piece
  • 1/2 cup cold whipped cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk


Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and soda, salt and chives, stirring well to coat. Using your hands, a fork or a pastry blender, add the butter and mix until coarse crumbles form. I like to use my hands for this and I spend about 5 full minutes rubbing the butter and flour through my fingers until the consistency is the same throughout the mix. Once finished, add in the cream cheese in spoonfuls. You’re going to do the same as you did with the butter – but you don’t want to mix the cream cheese in as much. A spoon works better here and just combine it until there are a few larger chunks of cream cheese and it’s worked into the flour.

Add the buttermilk and stir until it is JUST combined – do not overmix! Add some flour to your workspace and place the dough on top. I sprinkle some additional flour on top of the dough, then use my hands and pat it into a circle that is about one inch thick. Take a small biscuit cutter or even the (clean) lid to one of your spice containers and cut the biscuits into rounds. You want to use an instrument that is roughly one inch in diameter. Place on a nonstick baking sheet. Bake for 6-8 minutes, until slightly golden. These are best served warm when the cream cheese is still soft!
