Tiny cream cheese biscuits are so easy to make that I have the recipe committed to memory.
These literally melt in your mouth. You won’t be sorry that you made these tiny cream cheese biscuits, we pinky-swear promise!
I love going to potluck gatherings, don’t you? Typically I discover new-to-me foods and recipes. Such is the case with this recipe. Years ago, I attended a morning coffee event and we each had to bring a dish. One person brought tiny cream cheese biscuits and I had to refrain from eating every-single-one. Yes, they were that delicious!
Biscuits are quintessentially a southern staple. Every family that I know has a recipe that they pass down from generation to generation. There are a variety of biscuits: buttermilk, angel, rolled, drop, hand – well, you get the idea! I was so happy to learn of a new type of biscuit.
This recipe comes together quickly, which is an added bonus.
All you need are 3 ingredients – cream cheese, butter and self-rising flour. You don’t even need to grease the muffin tin.
- 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup self-rising flour
- Beat cream cheese and butter at medium speed with an electric mixer 2 minutes or until creamy.
- Gradually add flour, beating at low speed just until blended.
- Spoon dough into ungreased miniature (1 3/4-inch) muffin pans, filling full.
- Bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 17 minutes or until golden brown. Serve biscuits hot.
Light and fluffy
These biscuits are light and fluffy even though they have cream cheese in them. They are best served right out of the oven. Fair warning…you can’t eat just one. LOL
My family doesn’t feel the need to slather these in butter, but feel free to do so. If I make them for breakfast, I like to add a bit of strawberry freezer jam to them. BTW, I love my vintage Rosedale Johnson Bros. dinnerware. Do you use your vintage plates for everyday use?
Biscuits are so popular because they pair well with a variety of foods. Whether it’s breakfast with bacon and eggs or suppertime with fried chicken and green beans, biscuits are a perfect companion. These tiny biscuits are perfect served with soups and chili’s too.
Think of making these during the holidays too. Your family and guests always love them. Do you have a favorite biscuit recipe?
