Recipe Ingredients for Jannid's Cheese Biscuits

2 c flour, unbleached
3 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/2 c shortening
1 c cheddar, shredded
3/4 c milk

Recipe Directions for Jannid's Cheese Biscuits

  1. Preheat oven to 450.

  2. In large bowl combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Use a fork and "cut" in the shortening until it's the consistency of coarse meal - this is an important step, no large lumps please.

  3. Stir in the cheese. Stir in just enough of the milk only JUST until it forms a soft dough (may not use all the milk).

  4. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead about 10 or 12 times til just not sticky.

  5. Press to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut with a 2" biscuit cutter or a small juice glass (wad up the last bits and pieces for a final biscuit). Place on a Pam sprayed or non-stick baking sheet and keep them a little apart. The further apart, the crustier the sides.

  6. Bake for 8-12 minutes (all depends on your oven so watch closely) til lightly browned.

  7. Eat them all right away. No butter needed.
