The Spreadable Cheese That Produces Melt-In-Your-Mouth Biscuits

Whether presented as a dinner side dish or enjoyed in the morning alongside a hot cup of coffee, the right biscuit served straight out of the oven can be a nearly transformative experience. Within the biscuit family, there are rolled biscuits, drop biscuits, scones, and shortcakes, clarifies Quaker Oats; Each type of biscuit has a slightly different recipe to suit a variety of occasions and tastes.

But when it comes to baking the most fluffy, moist biscuits that also deliver an Instagram-worthy golden crust, Maya-Camille Broussard has tips. One simple added ingredient can turn an average batch of biscuits into something extraordinary. In Broussard's own words, "These biscuits are the business!" she told "Today."

Regardless of whether your palate craves a savory or sweet buttermilk taste, you may have a tough time storing away any of these drool-inducing biscuits to eat at a later time. Don't say we didn't warn you.

An irresistible batch

"The secret is the cream cheese," Maya-Camille Broussard admits to "Today." And while she voices her preference for fluffy biscuits to be served with both sweeter and savory dishes, Broussard also recognizes that certain meals call for a more flavorful taste. Extra ingredients like goat cheese or chopped chives, basil, or scallions will not only fill homes with tantalizing aromas but also retain the soft texture and crispy crust of mouth-watering biscuits.

Baked By An Introvert folds cold cream cheese directly into the dough to make honey cream cheese biscuits, using kitchen utensils to fold butter and cream cheese into flour. After the biscuit dough has come together, Broussard uses the rim of a beverage glass to create perfectly round and even biscuits. For those pressed for time, she suggests making the dough in advance, cutting out discs, wrapping, and freezing them. Then, when biscuit cravings hit, you can take the pre-cut frozen dough circles out of the freezer and bake them to serve.

Cream cheese might be Broussard's favorite, but you can also try serving recipes like our Fluffy Southern Biscuits with any kind of cheese you have in the fridge.
