I was surprised at how light and flaky these biscuits turned out! The cream cheese really worked well and I couldn't tell a difference from normal butter biscuits. Instead of adding the jam, I mixed in a cup of shredded cheese to make cheese biscuits. They were delicious, especially straight from the oven!

Wow, these biscuits were super YUMMY!!! I liked their flaky yet soft interior paired with slightly crunchy edges and their lovely taste! The jam adds a nice touch and makes these biscuits stand out! I used blueberry as that's what I had on hand and it turned out lovely! I will surely make this wonderful recipe again! THANKS A LOT for sharing it with us, Luvin' Texas!

These were so good! I loved the cream cheese, I used half whole wheat flour because I ran out of AP. I made a homemade gravy instead of using the jam but will try it next time. Thanks for a great recipe!
