Cheddar Biscuits
 
 
Author:
Serves: 10
Ingredients
  • (1+3/4) cup all purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp + 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2.5 tsp sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 7 Tbsp cold unsalted butter, cut in small pieces
  • (1+1/4) cups yellow sharp cheddar, grated
  • ¾ cup milk (I used 2%) (You can use whole milk or low fat)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425F and position a rack in the upper third of the oven.
  2. In a bowl, add flour, baking powder, sugar and salt and stir using a spatula. Add cold butter pieces and using your hands, work the butter in the dough until it breaks into pea size pieces. Add cheese and mix again. Add milk and stir only until combined. DO NOT OVER WORK THE DOUGH. Seriously this is very important or you will end up with hard biscuits. I mixed it using my hands very lightly. Take it out on a clean surface and using hands bring it together into a round shape. Now using hands pat it down to half an inch thickness approximately. Using a round cookie cutter or back of a glass, cut in round shape. Immediately transfer to a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake for 15-17 minutes, until golden.
Notes
Serve biscuits with Jalapeno - Tomato Butter.
