Elvis says ‘biscuits rock.’ Better than fried peanut butter and marsh mellow sandwiches fried in bacon fat. When Elvis wants to lose a few extra pounds he eats these ‘slimming’ biscuits. I tried another recipe and it came out like sh*t. I modified this and it taste really good, cream cheese (4 oz), butter (4oz), and about 2-3 tablespoons chives. It’s got a very nice flavor, and I don’t know about you all but I like using cream of tarter and baking soda because it makes them puff up like ‘they’s on ROIDS.
Flaky Cream Cheese & Chive Biscuits
Cut 4 oz of cream cheese and 4 oz of butter into cubes and put in the freezer for about 30 minute…
Meanwhile, mix 3 cups of flour with 2 teaspoons cream of tarter and one teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 tablespoon sugar, fork it all together –or— you can sift your flour, CofT and baking soda beforehand.
(Then go have a smoke while your cheese is getting nice and chilled, if you don’t smoke watch America Idol (or as Elvis suggested listen to Johnny Cash, Country Trash if you got it)).
Add cheese and butter to flour, fork a lot until it looks done (come on you know what it’s supposed to look like), add 1 cup and 2 tablespoons buttermilk (milk is fine), and 2 to 3 tablespoons chives. Mix with wooden spoon or your ‘clean’ hands, until it looks like dough. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.
(Fold some laundry; reminisce about a lost love, or just stand and twittle thumbs.)
On board roll it out. It’s pretty messy so have fun, flour well, and fold if you can, cut with a knife or biscuit cutter and put in oven, just don’t forget to use a pan.
