  • 4 tablespoons butter cut into cubes
  • cup all-purpose flour plus additional for patting out the dough
  • cups cake flour

Tools and equipment

    Instructions

    • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
    • Place the cubed cream cheese and butter in the freezer for 15 minutes while the oven preheats.
    • Add the all-purpose flour, cake flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a food processor and pulse to combine.
    • Add the frozen cream cheese and butter and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
    • Transfer the flour mixture to a large bowl.
    • Add the buttermilk to the bowl and stir just until the mixture forms a loose dough.
    • *Note - do not over mix or the biscuits will become tough in texture.
    • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and gently pat (or roll) the into an 8" x 6" rectangle.
    • Use a dough wheel or pizza wheel to cut the dough into 12 even pieces.
    • Place the biscuits onto a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper (optional).
    • Bake in a preheated oven for 15 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown.
    • Meanwhile, use a hand mixer to blend the softened butter and diced strawberries until smooth and creamy.
    • Serve the biscuits warm along with the softened strawberry butter.

    Notes

    These biscuits may be made in advance and frozen before baking.
    Place the cut dough onto a baking sheet, and freeze. Wrap tightly until you're ready to thaw and bake them according to the recipe directions.
    Strawberry butter would be delicious on grilled fruit, muffins, toast, or English muffins.
