  1. In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cayenne. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the cheese and toss. Stir in buttermilk just until moistened.
  2. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead 8-10 times. Pat or roll to 1 in. thickness; cut with a floured 2-1/2-in. biscuit cutter. Place 1 in. apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 425 degrees F for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.

This recipe is a winner! I have tried tons of "scratch" recipes for buttermilk biscuits, but this one is THE BEST! I used my food processor to mix the dry ingredients, then the ice cold butter...

My husband is a self-proclaimed "picky buttermilk biscuit eater" and claimed these to be the best he ever has eaten! The kids absolutely loved them,too!
