Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In the bowl of a food processor, combine the
All-Purpose Flour (2 cups)
Corn Starch (1/4 cup)
Baking Powder (1 Tbsp)
Baking Soda (1/4 tsp)
Granulated Sugar (1 Tbsp)
Salt (1 1/4 tsp)
. Pulse a few times to mix.
Unsalted Butter (1/2 cup)
and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse curd. Add the
Cream Cheese (2 Tbsp)
and pulse a few times until incorporated with a few pea-sized pieces of cream cheese intact. Transfer mixture to a mixing bowl.
Buttermilk (3/4 cup)
and stir with a spoon until dough comes together in a craggy mass. Do not over-mix.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Dust the top of the dough with a bit more flour and bring together gently into a loose ball. Pat the dough into a 3/4 inch thick rectangle.
Using a sharp knife, cut the dough into thirds. Stack the pieces on top of one another and pat out into a 3/4 inch thick rectangle again, flouring the surface lightly as needed to prevent the dough from sticking.
Cut the dough into thirds again. Stack the pieces on top of one another and pat into a rectangle with a final thickness of about 1/2 inch.
Dust the blade of a sharp knife with flour and cut the dough into twelve even squares. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until the biscuits are lightly golden on top and a deeper brown on the bottoms.
The biscuits are best served warm out of the oven, though a few minutes in the oven will revive slightly older biscuits. Serve and enjoy!
