2 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour, plus more for shaping
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons cold Cabot Salted Butter
6 ounces Cabot Sharp Cheddar or Cabot Extra Sharp Cheddar, grated (about 1 ½ cups)
About 1 cup buttermilk
PREHEAT oven to 450°F. Line baking sheet with parchment or stack 2 sheets together.
In large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
CUT butter into pieces and add to dry ingredients; work in with your fingers or pastry cutter until butter is in small bits. Add cheese and toss to combine.
STIR in enough of buttermilk to make very soft dough, with fork (it will be sticky). Turn out onto floured surface. Knead dough about 8 times by folding in half and pressing onto itself, dusting with more flour as needed. Press into ¾-inch-thick circle.
CUT out biscuits with 2 ½-inch diameter cutter or small glass, and place about ½ inch apart on baking sheet. Press scraps together and cut out additional biscuits.
BAKE for 12 to 15 minutes until golden. Serve warm with Apple-Cranberry Butter.
