Herbed Cheese Biscuits

These are GREAT with soup. I melded a couple of recipes from my Betty Crocker cookbook to come up with this.

Herbed Cheese Biscuits
  • 2 c. flour (I often use half white whole wheat)
  • 1 T. sugar
  • 3 t. baking powder
  • 1 t. salt
  • 3/4 t. Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 3/4 c. milk plus more as needed
  • 1/2 c. shredded cheese (sharp Cheddar is especially good)
  • melted butter--about 1/4 cup--if desired
  1. Combine  dry ingredients. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in milk to make a stiff dough (don't stir/mix too much!!). Add in cheese as dough comes together. You may need to add a touch more milk to make these soft enough to "drop" instead of roll out.
  2. Drop biscuits by heaping tablespoons onto cookie sheet. You should get about 12.
  3. Bake at 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
  4. If desired, spread melted butter over top of biscuits when they come out of the oven. Mmmm
