There’s nothing like a good biscuit. Until you add cheese! These are an easy upgrade to biscuits making them a delicious accompaniment to pretty much any meal. The cool part is you can sub any cheese you want. I like the way cheddar tastes in biscuits. Something about the cheddar flavor with the buttermilk biscuit just makes me smile. But that’s not to say you have to use cheddar. Maybe try gouda? Or mozzarella? Or Havarti? You really can’t lose with any combination. Get creative and enjoy!!
- 2 c self rising flour
- 1 T baking powder
- 1 t salt
- ½ cup butter
- 1 c buttermilk
- 1 c shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 T chopped chives
- In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
- Cut in cold butter with a pastry cutter or a fork, or just use your fingers. Mix until mixture is like pebbles.
- Slowly pour in cold buttermilk. Stir to combine.
- Add the cheddar cheese and chives and stir to combine. Dough will be sticky, so be sure to use a floured surface when you empty it from the bowl to knead.
- Knead dough 4– 6 times. Be careful not to over knead the dough, so the biscuits stay light and fluffy. Spread the dough out about ¾ inch thick and cut biscuits.
- Place cut biscuits on an ungreased baking sheet and place in freezer while preheating oven to 425 degrees F, 10–15 minutes.
- When oven reaches 425 degrees, remove biscuits from freezer and top with melted butter. Bake in the oven for 15 – 18 minutes.
- When the biscuits come out of the oven, immediately brush them with melted butter on them.
