  • Heat oven to 425ºF.
  • Mix flour and baking powder in large bowl. Cut in cream cheese with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in shredded cheese. Add milk; stir until mixture forms soft dough.
  • Pat dough to 3/4-inch thickness on floured surface. Cut into 14 rounds with 2-inch fluted biscuit cutter, rerolling scraps as necessary. Place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheet.
  • Bake 12 to 15 min. or until golden brown.


For extra flavour and a bit of kick, prepare using Cracker Barrel Shredded Habanero Heat Cheese.

Food Facts

Use only regular cream cheese since the light variety will produce lumpy biscuits.


Pour in milk all at once and mix briefly - don't worry if small pieces of cream cheese remain.

    The BEST !!! I am always asked to make 'my mother's biscuits' which call for shortening which I no longer wish to use. Then I discovered these, made them, and everyone loved them! & they were easier to make too. Does not get much better than that. This recipe is a keeper in my house. (Sorry mom) & thanks Kraft.
