Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees, with rack on lower shelf. In a large bowl, whisk together 2 cups flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and pepper. Cut in butter with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs, with some pea-size lumps. Mix in buttermilk and cheese until combined. With a floured hand, knead dough against side of bowl until it holds together. If it is sticky, knead in up to 1/4 cup more flour.

  • After kneading biscuit dough, turn it out onto a lightly floured work surface. Pat the dough to 1 inch thick. With a floured 2-inch biscuit cutter, cut out rounds as close together as possible. Place on a baking sheet. Gather scraps; pat again, and cut out more rounds.

  • Brush the tops with 1/2 tablespoon melted unsalted butter. Bake until biscuits are golden brown, rotating sheet halfway through, 18 to 20 minutes. Serve warm.

Thank You so much for this biscuit recipe. I hope I can soon make this recipe as quickly as I can my homemade tortillas. I watched the morning show for years and my grandchildren have become true lover of holiday talbe decorations and now I will teach my great grandchildren the same. I have pictures of a special thanksgiving dinner when my daughters oven didn't work so we took the turkey outside and put it on the bar b que grill. What a story. Love Pat Acosta of Yuma Arizona...
