Cheese Biscuits

The cheese biscuit recipe I used in this week's tea post was from Paula Deen. This is one of her signature items she serves at The Lady & Sons Restaurant. 

2 cups self-rising flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp sugar
1/3 cup Crisco shortening
3/4 cup grated Cheddar cheese
1 cup buttermilk

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix flour, baking powder, and sugar together using a fork; cut in shortening until it resembles cornmeal.  Add cheese. 
  3. Stir in buttermilk all at one time until just blended.  Do not overstir.
  4. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto a well-greased baking sheet.  Bake for 12 to 15 minutes.  
Yields: 8 large biscuits

Hello Sherry, I love making cheese biscuits - I add garlic powder and cook mine at 500 degrees - like I do regular biscuits. Then when their done and a little browner - I brush melted butter on top - melt in your mouth good! Perhaps I'll make some this evening!
Have a great day,
