1 (8-oz.) package cold cream cheese, cut into pieces
1/2 cup cold butter, cut into pieces
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
2 tablespoons butter, melted
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 400°. Combine yeast and warm water in a small bowl; let stand 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, whisk together flour and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl; cut cream cheese and cold butter into flour mixture with a pastry blender or fork until crumbly.
Combine yeast mixture and buttermilk, and add to flour mixture, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead lightly 6 to 8 times (about 30 seconds to 1 minute), sprinkling with up to 1/4 cup additional flour as needed to prevent sticking.
Roll dough to 3/4-inch thickness. Cut with a 2 1/2-inch round cutter, rerolling scraps once. Arrange biscuits on 2 parchment paper-lined baking sheets.
Bake at 400° for 13 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with melted butter.

We had this for dinner tonight and both of us thought it was very good. I baked the biscuits this afternoon for 10 minutes and froze the ones I wasn't going to use for another day. At dinner time I finished baking the biscuits. That worked well. I bought honey ham at the dell. The Figgy Port Chutney and Blue Cheese Butter were delicious. Great combination of flavors.
