Cheddar Cheese Biscuits


Rich and flaky, these biscuits need only a small dollop of savory jam (like red pepper or fig) to elevate them to perfection. Serve with breakfast or dinner -- they'll go fast either way.

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°F.

Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the cheese and toss. Stir in heavy cream just until moistened.

Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead 6 to 8 times. Roll to 1/2 -inch thickness; cut with a floured 2-inch biscuit cutter. Place 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 12 to 15 minutes, until golden brown.

Serve warm.
