2½ cups King Arthur Self-Rising Flour, sifted
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons sugar
½ teaspoon salt
1 stick cold Cabot Unsalted Butter, cut into small cubes
4 ounces Cabot Farmhouse Reserve Cheddar or Cabot Extra Sharp Cheddar, finely diced (about 1 cup)
⅔ cup nonfat buttermilk, plus 2 tablespoons if needed
2 ounces Cabot Farmhouse Reserve Cheddar, shredded (about ½ cup)
PREHEAT oven to 400° F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
WHISK self-rising flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a medium bowl. Add butter and toss to coat with the flour mixture. Quickly work butter into the flour mixture by squeezing the flour-coated pieces of butter into the mixture. Press all of the butter flat until no cubes remain. Add cubed cheddar and toss to coat.
MAKE a well in the center of the dry mix and pour in the buttermilk. Gradually stir the liquid into the flour mixture until the mixture is shaggy, working gently with hands to get it to come together. If the mixture will not come together at all add up to 2 tablespoons buttermilk.
TURN the shaggy mass out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead together until the dough comes together as a single piece. It will still be pretty rough and uneven (do not overwork).
ROLL the dough out into a large rectangle about 10-inches wide by 15-inches. Cut into biscuits with a 2 ¾-inch biscuit cutter. (Avoid twisting motion with cutter for best rise.)
TRANSFER to the prepared baking sheet. Re-gather scraps and roll one time for another two or so biscuits. You should have 14 biscuits. Divide the shredded cheddar over the biscuits.
BAKE until the biscuits are puffed and lightly golden, 13 to 15 minutes.
