What happens when.....

You're making biscuits and....

The recipe calls for;

...Milk, and you only have buttermilk....

...Brown sugar, and you only have white....

...Butter, and you only have cream cheese and shortening?

The finished product can actually taste quite good!

I was amazed, but cream cheese is actually a yummy substitute for butter in biscuits. It cuts into the flour much easier, too. The dough is a little stickier, but it works if you're gentle. The recipe also called for some shortening, which I used - I'm not sure if using cream cheese only would have worked or not. Maybe I'll try it someday.

Wow. I don't think I'd be brave enough to do that.
