Carrie Morey has been dedicated to the tradition of biscuit-making since 2005. Through Callie’s Charleston Biscuits and her grab-and-go biscuit business, Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit, Carrie is spreading her love of buttery, fluffy biscuits across the country. Her Classic Buttermilk Biscuits, her businesses’ staple recipe, are based on her mother’s beloved recipe. Carrie’s go-to flour for her biscuits is White Lily. Made of 100% red winter wheat, this extra soft flour yields tender, pillowy biscuits, just like the ones Carrie’s mother made. Adding cream cheese to the dough makes the biscuits extra rich and soft, with a slight tang that will make you understand why these biscuits founded a culinary empire.

- 2 cups (240 grams) White Lily Self-Rising Flour, plus more for dusting
- 4 tablespoons (56 grams) salted butter, room temperature
- ¼ cup (56 grams) cream cheese, softened, cut into cubes
- ¾ to 1 cup (180 to 240 grams) whole buttermilk
- 1 tablespoon (14 grams) salted butter, melted
- Preheat oven to 450°F. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
