Blueberry Cream Cheese Biscuit Recipe

Homemade Biscuits

Homemade biscuits are one of our favorite weekend breakfast treats. You can’t beat a warm biscuit right out of the oven, especially when you slather that biscuit with butter and homemade jam.

Our new favorite breakfast biscuits are these Blueberry Cream Cheese Biscuits from Jessica’s new cookbook, The Pretty Dish. When our boys saw the biscuits in her beautiful new cookbook, they begged us to make them for breakfast. We wanted to make and eat them too, so it was an easy sell:)

Perfect Biscuits

Don’t be intimidated by making homemade biscuits, especially these Blueberry Cream Cheese Biscuits. They are easy to make and SO light and fluffy! The biscuits are made with plenty of butter (a biscuit MUST), buttermilk, AND cream cheese. Yes, cream cheese in biscuits. Jessica is creative like that and the cream cheese addition makes these biscuits SO good!

The biscuits are also filled with plump and juicy blueberries. Our boys love blueberries and were super excited about the blueberry addition. The blueberries really make the biscuits special. Oh, and let’s not forget the salted vanilla butter. It is the perfect finishing touch for the biscuits. Slather that butter on a warm biscuit and you will be in biscuit heaven, especially when you bite into a juicy blueberry! Biscuit perfection!

How to Make Biscuits:

  • Bake the biscuits at a high temperature, 425 degrees F.
  • Make sure your butter, cream cheese, and buttermilk are COLD.
  • Don’t overwork the biscuit dough. If you do, the biscuits will be tough and you won’t get the flaky texture you are looking for.
  • Carefully mix in the blueberries. You can use fresh or frozen blueberries, but be careful when you are mixing them in. You don’t want to smash them, if you do, you will have blue biscuits.
  • Use a biscuit cutter to cut the biscuits. If you don’t have a biscuit cutter you can use a circle glass to cut the biscuits.
  • Make sure you form the biscuit dough into a circle that is a 1 1/2-inch circle. Yes, you want the biscuits that thick.
  • You will have extra dough after cutting your first round of biscuits. Gently form the dough back together and cut more biscuits until all of the dough is used.
  • The biscuits will puff up in the oven. Bake until golden and high.
  • Serve warm with salted vanilla butter, if desired.

Ingredients

For the Biscuits:

  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 ounces cold cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter cut into small pieces
  • 1 1/4 cups cold buttermilk
  • 2/3 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

For the Vanilla Butter:

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. To make the biscuits, in a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt. Add the cream cheese and butter and use a fork, pastry blender, or your hands to mix until coarse little crumbs form. Make a well in the center and pour in the buttermilk. Stir with a large spoon until just combined. Fold in the blueberries. Use your hands if needed to bring the dough together.
  3. Pat the dough into a circle that is about 1 1/2 inches thick. This will make tall biscuits and that is what you want. Using a biscuit cutter, cut the dough into rounds and place on a nonstick baking sheet. Bring the extra dough together and cut more biscuits, using all of the dough.
  4. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the biscuits are golden and high. Let cool slightly before serving.
  5. To make the vanilla butter, in a bowl mix the butter, vanilla bean paste, and salt until combined. Serve the butter on the warm biscuits. You can keep this at room temperature or store it in the fridge for a few days.

  1. I made these this morning and they turned out great!  My family loved them.  I couldn’t find vanilla bean paste so to top it I made the Maple Glaze recipe from your Blueberry Sour Cream Waffle recipe.  So Yummy!

  2. These look amazing and I can’t wait to try. Do you dust the blueberries in flour before adding them in or no? Thanks


  3. I made the biscuts this evening. Learn from my mistake- use fresh blueberries. Frozen blueberries made the dough too wet. Even after adding a good amount of flour I had to resort to drop biscuts. The blueberry juice, from melting blueberries, made the biscuts look green- like green mold. They taste delicious but dont look very appealing.

    1. My second go with fresh blueberries was SO MUCH better! I still had to add a decent amount of flour to be able to roll them out as biscuts. They look awesome and were super delicous! I received many complements! …now im off to go eat another! 😉


  4. These were wonderful! I didn’t have enough blueberries, so I added some strawberries as well. Delicious!! Do you think these would turn out just as great as plain biscuits- no fruits added?
