Cheddar Biscuit Recipe

These cheddar biscuits are classic roll biscuits with a lovely, cheesy twist!


2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons milk
3/4 cup grated Cheddar cheese
2 teaspoons minced garlic (optional)
1/4 teaspoons cracked black pepper 


Position rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Set aside and ungreased baking sheet.

In a large bowl blend together flours, baking powder, and salt. Mix well.

In a separate bowl whisk together milk, cream, cheese, garlic and black pepper. Add milk mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir until dry ingredients are well moistened. The batter should be moist and sticky, but not smooth.

Use a teaspoon to form heaping scoops of biscuit batter. Use another spoon to scrape the batter onto the baking sheet. Space the cheese biscuits about 1 1/2" apart.

Bake in oven until biscuit bottoms are golden brown, about 12 minutes. Serve these tasty cheddar biscuits hot.
