Cheesy Buttermilk Biscuit Recipe

Cheesy Buttermilk Biscuits

Cook Time: 13 Minutes
Total Time: 25 Minutes
Makes 12 Small Bicuits or 6 Large Biscuits



2 Cups All Purpose Flour Plus Extra For Rolling

1 Tbs. Baking Powder

1Tbs. Sugar

1 tsp. Salt

1/2 Cup Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese

1/2 Cup Shredded or Cubed White Cheddar Cheese

3/4 Cup Buttermilk



  1. Pre-heat oven to 350┬░.
  2. Place butter and milk in freezer for 10 minutes before beginning. You want the butter as cold as possible when you start.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt.
  4. Cube the cold butter. Cut the butter into the flour mixture. Mix with fingers or pastry cutter until texture resembles course oatmeal.
  5. Add cheese and mix until all cheese is covered in flour.
  6. Create a well or hole in the center of the flour mixture.
  7. Pour half of the buttermilk into the flour well and gently fold flour from sides into center. Add the rest of the buttermilk and with a spoon or your fingers, gently mix until all ingredients come together into a dough. The biscuits will not rise properly if overmixed so be careful!
  8. Turn out dough onto a floured surface and lightly press into a flattened rectangle 2 inches thick. Cut biscuits with a round biscuit cutter or cookie cutter and place them on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Place them 1/2 inch apart. You want them close not touching. They will "climb" off each other and rise higher if placed together.
  9. Bake for 13 minutes or until tops are slightly browned.
  10. Optional: Brush the tops of your cooked biscuits with melted butter and a little extra salt for added flavor!
