Easy and yummy three ingredient biscuit recipe

So Thanksgiving is only two weeks away! What in the world? And that means less than six weeks till Christmas. Ahhhhh! Are you freaking out yet?
Don’t freak out. Making these will make you feel better, I PROMISE.
I blogged about these little puffs of goodness years ago but didn’t really show them to you, so I’m dedicating a whole post to them because they are just. that. good. They would be a perfect addition to your Thanksgiving feast, and are so easy to make.
Most of us have a crutch when it comes to certain foods, right? Like sweets or chips or whatever. Mine is bread. Anything bread. Buttered, toasted…any shape, any color, flavor, I’m there. And dear Lord…the rolls at Texas Roadhouse? Forget about it.
These little biscuits are SO heavenly. They taste similar to the cheddar biscuits at Red Lobster. Is your mouth watering yet?
The best part is they are soooo simple. Three ingredients:
Easy biscuit recipe
One cup self-rising flour
1/2 cup butter (softened)
1 package (8 oz) softened cream cheese
That’s it! Now I added a couple extras this time to amp them up even more (they don’t need anything but I like to play around with tried and true recipes).
You just mix the three ingredients together. It will be very thick:

One little addition I made this time was a bit of shredded cheddar cheese. Just a sprinkle, maybe a few tablespoons?
I scooped them out on the (greased) pan using my ice cream scoop:

I use this more for baking than I do for ice cream. ;)
When I had just a bit left to scoop out, I added some dill to the mixture:

I LOVE dill and my sis suggested it – brilliant. I only added it to the last few cause I didn’t think hubby would like them with it.
This recipe makes over a dozen biscuits because I make them smaller. When you put them on the baking sheet you can place them pretty close together because they don’t spread much while baking.
Bake them in a preheated oven at 400 degrees for 15-17 minutes and then ENJOY their buttery, crumbly goodness:

Go ahead and eat one or three right off the baking sheet. I wouldn’t know anything about that.
They are seriously amazing. I make them when we entertain and they’re always a hit. LOVE.
If you’re planning your Thanksgiving meal they would be a great addition – let me know if you try them out! :)
What are you making for your Thanksgiving feast?

  1. Oh yum! I'll have to try these.

    A tip I learned from...Joy the Baker, I think...put your biscuits close together so that as they cook, they'll touch each other and that will make them rise more.

  2. I am so glad you mentioned roadhouse. I was a service manager and worked there for ten years, I bet I've eaten thousands of rolls from there!!

  5. these sound (and look) yummy! i might have to try making these for Thanksgiving, since one of my family's "traditions" is leaving the (store bought Pillsbury type) dinner rolls in the oven and forgetting about them and burning them! :) this way we'll have a delicious backup! :)

  6. Yum- these look so good! I had a major panic attack about how close Christmas is- we have barely touched our shopping list this year, normally we have it all done by now. And we have a house to re-organize because family is coming into town and they're bunking with us...ack, where is my paper bag to breathe into?!?

  11. Anything with cream cheese is the bomb and I know for sure I am going to have to try these. So easy. You mentioned the garlic cheese biscuits as Red Lobster, you really must try them with the caramel ice cream sauce. I know it sounds disgusting but a little waitress at the Red Lobster by us made us try it and it was da bomb. Really! Anyway, thanks for the recipe. I am always looking for easy.

  12. I make these except instead of cream cheese I use sour cream and sometimes add in some chives. So good! I've never thought to serve them at Thanksgiving. I think I might do that this year!

  13. Bookmarked! I'll see if hubs wants me to make these for biscuits and gravy tomorrow. I HATE the refrigerated crap from the store.

  14. I love bread as much as you do! It's my if I was stranded on a dessert island food. Your biscuits look so delicious. I haven't had breakfast yet and I really wish you were my next-door neighbor so I could have one now. I'm keeping the recipe. Thanks for the great tutorial.

  15. Oh, my, these look wonderful! Biscuits were with every meal when I was growing up. Now that I can no longer eat gluten, I have been trying to find a good recipe. I think I'll give this a try with gluten-free baking mix. Fingers {and toes} crossed! :)

  27. These sound amazing! Does anyone know if this recipe needs to be adjusted for high altitude cooking? I live near Denver and have to adjust some recipes so they rise correctly, but not sure if that's needed for these. Any advice would be appreciated!

  31. so i just had to comment again...i just made 2 batches of these and they are absolutely heavenly!!! the first batch looked way too dry so i added a tablespoon of milk... whoops! they ended up spreading out and kind of look more like cookies, but they taste exactly the same. the second batch i left out the milk and just went with it, and they look exactly like yours above. i'm confident the fam will be impressed tomorrow, as long as i can keep my hands off of them that long!! :) thanks again for this awesome super quick easy and amazingly delicious recipe!! i think i will be making these all the time!!
