Prepare time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 14 minutes
Serves: 7 servings
1) 1 cup all purpose flour (160g), ½ tsp salt, 1.75 tsp baking powder, 1/3 tsp ground black pepper;
2) 1/2 cup butter (120g, softened);
3) 1 cup Kraft PHILADELPHIA cream cheese (225g, softened);
4) 10 of 31/40 size frozen shrimp;
5) 2.5 tbsp freshly chopped green onion;
6) ½ tsp white vinegar, 2.5 tsp cold water.
1: Soak frozen shrimps in cold water to defrost. Peel and devein the shrimp, rinse under cold water and drain well. Cut shrimps into very small pieces (Picture 1), set aside.
2: Measure in all ingredients of Ingredient 1) in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Beat butter and cream cheese at high speed in a mixing bowl for a few minutes (Picture 3). Beat in chopped green onion and chopped shrimp (Picture 4). Add flour (Picture 5); beat at low speed for a minute.
3: Add ingredients of Ingredient 6); mix with a spatula (Picture 6). Transfer all into a plastic bag and combine to form dough (Picture 7; use a plastic is bit easier to handle the dough). Turn out on lightly floured surface and gently knead 3-4 times and flatten the dough to a circle (Picture 8).
4: Roll out to 0.8 cm thick circle, cut with 5 cm cookie cutter (Picture 9) and place them on the parchment paper lined baking sheet about 3 cm apart (Picture 10). Stick the scraps together and make more biscuits. I made a total of 28 biscuits. If you can’t fit them all on the baking sheet, refrigerate and bake them later.
5: Bake biscuits at 425F/210C for 13-15 minutes until golden and puffed.
