Easy Cheddar Biscuits
My husband, Sandy, is the biscuit-maker in our house, and he swears by this recipe.
Makes 24 biscuits
Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C)
1. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients until dough clings together to form a ball. On a floured surface, gently knead dough and roll out to ½-inch (1 cm) thick.
2. Cut out biscuits using a cookie cutter or the rim of a glass. Brush with milk and place on baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for about 10 minutes, or until golden.
TIP: These biscuits are a great gift idea; simply pack them in festive tins. For a real kick, Sandy sometimes adds diced jalapeno peppers – but warn your guests!
