Herbed Cheese Biscuits

INGREDIENTS

Herbed Cheese Biscuits

  • 2 C. (500 mL) all-purpose flour
  • 3 tsp. (15 mL) baking powder
  • 2 tsp. (10 mL) chopped fresh or dried dill
  • 3/4 tsp. (4 mL) salt
  • 1/3 C. (75 mL) Crisco® All-Vegetable Shortening
  • 1/2 C. (125 mL) shredded sharp cheddar or Swiss cheese
  • 3/4 C. (175 mL) milk

DIRECTIONS

  1. Heat oven to 425°F (220ºC).
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, dill and salt. With a pastry blender, 2 knives, or a fork, cut in shortening until mixture looks like coarse meal. Stir in shredded cheese. Add milk. Stir just until dough holds together.
  3. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and knead lightly. Roll 3/4-inch (2 cm) thick. Cut dough with floured 2″ (5 cm) biscuit cutter without turning biscuit cutter (push straight down). Place on parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
