Cheese Biscuits

"'THE BREAD at this meal sometimes varied, but we loved Mother's cheese biscuits best. Although the biscuit bowl was always filled to the top, there never seemed to be enough. The cheese gives these biscuits an unforgettable flavor, and buttermilk makes them especially light.'"

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Cut in shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in cheese. Add buttermilk; stir just until dough clings together. On a lightly floured surface, knead dough lightly until easy to handle. Roll into a 12-in. circle. Cut into eight wedges. Begin at wide end of wedge and roll toward point. Place biscuits, point side down, on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 450 degrees F for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.

We make these all the time to go with soups and stews. I always use butter instead of shortening and add a a few shakes of Italian seasoning to the mix, gives it a wonderful flavor.

I followed the recipe exactly (once it had been scaled down to 6 servings). They weren't bad, just really bland. Maybe some of the other reviewers' suggestions (such as garlic) would help.

I absolutely love this recipe! It is so easy to make. I've also tried it with some dill or onion added to the dough, and it turns out very nice. To save time, I don't bother rolling them out ...

These were super easy to make and my kids absolutely loved them. I served the biscuits with potato soup V and had no leftovers! Thanks for the great recipe.

I thought these were pretty good, though a little bland. They could definitely use a sharper or more exiting cheese (I used a rather mild cheddar) and the addition of some garlic and herbs. Mayb...

This was a 5 star recipe with some simple additions; garlic salt, fresh parsley & dried oregano. I didn't have cheddar, so I used a combo of swiss, parmesan & cheddar crumbles (from Imperial sp...

I really liked this recipe! I did make some changes. I used my bread machine to mix the dough, and trade 1 tsp. of bkgpwdr for yeast. I also used butter instead of shortening. Thanks for the pos...

Great tasting my kids loved them. I did cut in more than 8 wedges so that I had smaller ones rather than 8 larger ones. Super easy to make.

these were great. used 2% milk and added extra cheese and added garlic salt
