  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and cream of tartar. Cut in butter using a pastry cutter or a fork until it is the size of peas. Make a well in the center of the mixture and measure the milk, cheese and thyme into the bowl. Gently mix until a soft dough forms.
  3. Roll or pat out on a floured surface to 3/4 inch thick. Cut into circles and place on a baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the bottoms of the biscuits are golden brown.

Made these last night with some beef brisket. Cut back on the thyme and found that the sugar made them a little too sweet for my taste. A tip for everyone - put your butter in the freezer for ...

First time biscuit maker! I really liked them. Didn’t use thyme or cream of tartar. I used block cheddar and I shredded it myself, made the biscuits tastier. The dough was incredible easier to w...

Superb! If the limit were not 5 stars, I could have given it a lot more. I happened to have some cheddar cheese and fresh thyme on hand or I might not have made this - and I'm so glad I did - it...

I reduced the amount of thyme and wished I had not. I reduced the amount of sugar to a mere 2 teaspoons and was very glad I did. When I removed the biscuits from the oven I brushed them with m...

Perfect as is. I experimented with using 1 1/2 cups of white flour and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour, and that worked very well too. Next time I'm going to try sprinkling a little grated cheese on...

I've been searching for the perfect biscuit for a while now, and i've just found it. Flavourful, moist but still flaky, these were delicious! I'd make these again at the drop of a hat. I did hav...

A little too sweet, but otherwise very good. Nice texture and I love the cheddar-thyme combo. Great with beef stew.

These were soooo good. I didn't have thyme so I just used cheddar and they were still delicious. Letting the dough sit for a while extra (15 minutes) made them rise a bit more and look more bi...

These were so delicious. They are just like the biscuits served at Red Lobster seafood restaurant.
