Savory Cheddar Biscuits


I literally make these biscuits for every occasion. They go so well with pasta, and soak up gravy like there’s no tomorrow! This recipe makes quite a few of them, depening on the size of your cutter. I used a plastic kids cup and 10 biscuits were made…with one giant fat one that I ate myself 😉

For this recipe you will need:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1tbsp baking powder
  • 1tsp salt
  • 1tbsp white sugar
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2/3 cup shredded cheese
  • 1tbsp basil
  • 1 pinch crumbled rosemary leaves
  • 1tsp garlic powder

Start off by preheating the oven to 425F.

Step 1:

Blend flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, rosemary, basil, and cheese. Slowly stir in the milk until the mixture is staying together but still a little crumbly.


Step 2:

Roll out onto a floured surface. Knead 20+ times. After you’ve finished kneading the dough, roll it out on the same floured surface to 1 inch thickness. Cut into circles using a cutter or juice cup.


Step 3:

Bake on ungreased sheet 13-15 minutes. Take out of the oven half way through and sprinkle with some more shredded cheese.

Some tips: Leaving your dough sitting on the counter, covered by a towel for about 20-30 minutes will help with the dough rising.

When cutting your dough, do not saw or turn your cutters. Simply press down, and release. This will ensure maximum rising potential!
