Quick Cheese Biscuit



  • 1 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 Cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 3/4 C milk


  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Stir in Cheddar.
  • Cut in butter using a pastry blender or 2 knives until coarse crumbs form.
  • Using a fork, stir milk into flour mixture until a soft dough forms. Do not over mix or overwork dough.
  • Drop dough in heaping tablespoons, 1 inch apart, onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake until biscuits are firm to the touch, about 15 minutes.
