Bacon and cream cheese biscuits

Makes 16 biscuits

Ingredients:

  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons cold butter, cubed, plus 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 2 ounces regular cream cheese, cubed
  • 3/4 cup cold buttermilk
  • 4 slices thick-cut bacon

Directions:

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon until crisp. Let the bacon slices cool on a paper towel, and then chop. Set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  4. In a food processor, pulse together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  5. Add the cubed butter and cubed cream cheese. Pulse the mixture until slightly crumbly, about 4-5 pulses.
  6. Pour in the buttermilk. Pulse 4-5 times until the entire mixture comes together. The dough will be wet.
  7. Add the chopped bacon and pulse 4-5 times to equally distribute the bacon pieces.
  8. Lightly flour the counter and dump the dough onto the flour. Lightly knead for about 30 seconds, and then pat the dough to 1/2-inch in thickness.
  9. Using a 1-1/2-inch biscuit cutter, cut out biscuits and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Brush with melted butter.
  10. Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown.
  11. Let cool for 3-5 minutes before serving.
