The great thing about biscuits is that they’re not very complicated to make. All you need to get started is flour, baking powder, salt, heavy cream, and four ounces of Cabot Sharp Cheddar. Now, if you prefer your cheddar to be extra sharp, you can substitute our suggestion with Cabot Extra Sharp Cheddar. Keep in mind that when you’re ready to bake them, you should place the biscuits roughly one inch apart on the baking tray—they’ll expand as they bake, so it’s important to give them a little extra room. Bake until they turn a lovely golden brown.

PLACE rack in upper third of oven and preheat oven to 450°F. Butter baking sheet and set aside.
SIFT flour, baking powder and salt, into large bowl. Stir in cheese. With fork, stir in cream a little at a time until no dry bits remain and dough has formed (you may not need all the cream).
TURN dough out onto lightly floured work surface and knead about 6 times. Roll or press dough into ¾-inch-thick circle. Cut out rounds with floured 2½-inch cutter or inverted glass, pressing scraps together to cut additional biscuits. Alternatively, cut circle into 10 wedges.
Place biscuits 1 inch apart on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden.
This is a very good cheddar biscuit. I have tried many and this recipe results in a good flake and good cheese flavor. I used the food processor to prepare the dough: grating the cheese first in the bowl, then changing to the blade, then adding the sifted dry ingredients (pulsing) then adding the cream in through the tube, pulsing as I went forward. I turned the dough out and proceeded. I would advise watching how the cream is integrating, so not to get too wet a dough. (I baked them on Stilpat.) Good and very easy to do.
I made these several times with half & half instead of the heavy cream (didn’t have cream in the house). I only used about a cup and they came out great. Just keep an eye on them because they get done faster than the 12 to 15 minutes stated in the recipe. This should help lower the fat and calories a little… 😉
Add chopped cooked ham, chopped green onion Makes a great breakfast sandwich when sliced toasted and served with a fried egg
I will make these biscuits again and again. They were easy, light and tasty. My husband and I enjoyed.
I have made these a few times, they are easy, and a dependable crowd pleaser!
Too high in saturated fat and sodium, for most diets. One biscuit is a lot of calories for one meal, expecially if the biscuit is buttered!
