The BEST Homemade White Cheddar Biscuits | Light, Flakey, White Cheddar Biscuits


I've said it before (I think...) and I'll say it again- I love serving a really great bread or biscuit as a "side" instead of serving potatoes or rice.  Everyone goes crazy for bread and biscuits but it can be too heavy sometimes to serve them along side another very starchy side.  So, I like to serve them as the side instead.  A great example of this theory applied in a menu would be a BBQ grilled Pork Loin, Wilted Lettuce Salad and White Cheddar Biscuits.  It is a decadent meal, but not too over the top and your guests won't be passing on the bread basket.

Homemade
White Cheddar Biscuits

2 cups all-purpose flour (plus more for the board and cutting)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) cold unsalted butter, diced
1 cup of white cheddar, shredded
1/2 cup cold buttermilk, shaken
1 cold extra-large egg
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Place 2 cups of flour, the baking powder, and salt in the bowl of a mixer with the paddle attachment.  Add butter and cheese and mix on low until it is a rough mixture.  In a small measuring cup, combine the buttermilk and egg and beat lightly with a fork.   Add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture and mix only until moistened. 

Dump out onto a well-floured board and knead lightly about 6 times to shape into a 2-3 inch high disk.  Using a round cutter, cut biscuits.  If you don't have a round biscuit cutter, you can use the rim of a glass or small bowl... or whatever else you can find!  Place biscuits on a baking sheet lined with a Silpat liner.  Bake for 18-20 minutes, just until they begin to brown on top slightly.




Homemade biscuits are such a treat... share them as gifts!  Here is a post about how to package them for friends and neighbors.
