Cheesy Biscuits
Recipe type: High Altitude Baking
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ tablespoon baking powder
  • 1¼ teaspoons salt
  • 1½ sticks cold unsalted butter, diced
  • ⅔ cup cold buttermilk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Add the cold diced butter and use a pastry blender to cut the butter into the flour mixture. You'll want to see small chunks of butter slightly larger than peas.
  5. Combine the buttermilk and beaten egg, add to the flour mixture along with the shredded cheese.
  6. Gently mix the dough until it is evenly moistened and holds together. If your flour is very dry, you may need to add a little more buttermilk.
  7. On a lightly floured surface, pat the dough into a rough square, about 1¼" thick.
  8. You can use a knife to cut out 9 biscuits, or a cutter for round shapes.
  9. Place the biscuits on a the prepared baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes, until the bottoms and tops are a light golden brown.
  10. Yield: About 9 biscuits
