  • 3 cups all-purpose flour measured correctly
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon buttermilk
  • 4 ounces cream cheese cut into 1/2-inch cubes then frozen for 30 minutes
  • 4 tablespoons butter salted or unsalted (I used salted, it's what I prefer.) cut into cubes and frozen for 30 minutes 


  • Cube cream cheese and butter and freeze for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  • To a bowl, add flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda, cream cheese, and butter.
  • Using a pastry cutter, mix ingredients until it resembles coarse meal. 
  • Stir in buttermilk until combined. This dough will appear dry.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead 4 to 5 times until the dough comes together.
  • Press dough into a 3/4 inch thick rectangle and cut into twelve 2-inch squares. 
  • Transfer to a baking sheet and bake until golden brown 12 to 15 minutes.
  • Serve warm
