Total Time 38 minutes
Servings 12 biscuits


  • 3 cups White Lily Unbleached Self Rising Flour
  • 6 TBSP, divided unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup full fatcream cheese
  • 3/4 to 1 cup full fat ice cold buttermilk


  1. Preheat your oven to 450°F. 

  2. Place two cups of your flour into a large mixing bowl and add 4 TBSP of butter into bowl. Using your hands, cut the butter into the dough until fine cous cous sized grains are left in the bowl. 

  3. Add your cream cheese in the same manner. 

  4. When both the butter and cream cheese is incorporated, make a well in the middle of your dough and pour in the buttermilk. Using your hands, scoop from the outside in as you incorporate the buttermilk. If the dough is too dry, add your remaining 1/4 cup and continue to mix with your hands until a crumbly but sticky wet dough is left. 

  5. With the remaining 1 cup of flour, flour your working surface and dump the biscuits onto the floured surface. Dust the top of your dough with flour, and morph into a circle. 

  6. With a rolling pin, roll out your dough until it's an inch thick. 

  7. Using a biscuit cutter, firmly cut out each biscuit and place onto a parchment paper rimmed baking sheet. Once all biscuits are cut, melt the remaining butter and brush the tops of the biscuits with butter. 

  8. Bake for 16-18 minutes or until golden brown. Serve and eat immediately.
