The Spreadable Cheese That Produces Melt-In-Your-Mouth Biscuits
Whether they're eaten as a side dish or enjoyed in the morning with a cup of coffee, a fluffy biscuit served warm out of the oven can be transformative. Countless biscuit recipes use different ingredients and techniques that promise fluffy and flaky layers, but this one secret ingredient might be the easiest path to the perfect batch.
Chef Maya-Camille Broussard told Today that when making biscuits, "The secret is the cream cheese." Adding this soft cheese to biscuits will make them fluffy and moist and with an Instagram-worthy golden crust, and Broussard adds that savory goat cheese, chopped chives, and basil will pump up the flavor of the neutral biscuits.
Baked By An Introvert follows this technique by folding cold cream cheese directly into the dough, and to cut the biscuits, Broussard uses the rim of a drinking glass to create perfectly round and even shapes. She even says that you can tightly wrap and freeze the discs of dough, then bake them whenever you get a craving for biscuits.
