Buttermilk Cheddar Biscuits

This weekend my children stayed up late. I mean they stayed up until midnight. They still woke up early. By the time it was dinner time, the kids could not stop laughing. I found it very funny. I'm just glad I served something easy like broccoli cheddar soup with these wonderful biscuits. These are my favorite biscuits. I love cheddar like my husband loves peanut butter. I have made these biscuits several times so I figured I should share it. Since it is October, we have to give everything spooky names.
Even Zombies would eat these biscuits
2 1/2 cups flour plus additional
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
10 Tbsp cold unsalted butter, cubed
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 egg
3/4 cup extra sharp Cheddar, shredded
1 Tbsp milk

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. 
  4. Add the butter and mix until the butter is incorporated to the size of peas.
  5. In a glass measuring cup, combine the buttermilk with an egg. Beat lightly with a fork to combine.
  6. Add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture. Mix until just moistened.
  7. Combine the cheddar cheese with a little flour to coat.
  8. Gently, combine the cheese with the dough. 
  9. Mix only until just combined.
  10. On a floured surface, scoop out the dough and knead six times.
  11. Roll the dough into a rectangle.
  12. With a sharp, floured knife, divide the dough into 8 rectangles.
  13. Place the rectangles onto the parchment paper.
  14. Brush the tops of the biscuits with the milk.
  15. Bake for 20 minutes or until the biscuits are cooked through.
