Cheesy Herbed Biscuits with (just about anything) ๐ŸŒฟ ๐Ÿง€

Screen Shot 2017-12-09 at 7.33.59 AMOur neighbor Jan is a true southerner and a great chef. She was the first to tell me, “Baby, now that you are down south on weekends, you better get to know White Lily flour when making biscuits.” ย She was spot on and it has made a big difference. ย You can do just about anything with a biscuit. ย I like them packed with goodness such as cheese and herbs.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups White Lilyย all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder that’s not been open for more than 3-4 months
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups sharp yellow cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 stick cold unsalted butted, diced
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup chopped chives
  • 1 extra large brown egg

Making it

  • Sift together the flower, baking powder, salt and sugar
  • Put the stick of butter in the freezer for ten minutes then take out and dice into 1/4 inch cubes
  • In a small bowl, beat the egg with 1 tablespoon of water (this is an egg wash)
  • Set the oven to 400 degrees
  • Put the dry mix in the Kitchen Aid with the paddle attachment, turn on a low speed
  • Add the butter cubes and let mix
  • While still on a low mix, add the buttermilk until just mixed then add in the chives and cheese until incorporated. It will look like a ball…if you need to add a few drops of buttermilk to ensure it is fully ioncorporated
  • Roll the dough ball onto a well-floured surface and kneed into a rectangle about 3/4 inch thick
  • Use the cutter and place the rounds on parchment paper that has been placed on the baking sheet
  • Brush each top with the egg wash
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the tops are golden brown and the insides are firm
