Add a little extra love to any meal you've got planned with our recipe for Hearty Cheese Biscuits. These homemade cheese biscuits promise to deliver lots of cheddar-y goodness in every bite. Slather on the jelly or eat them as-is; either way, they're tummy-lovin' good. 

What You'll Need

  • 2 cups self-rising flour, plus more for rolling out
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
     
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, cheese, sugar, salt, and cayenne pepper, if desired; mix well. Using a fork or pastry cutter, cut shortening into flour mixture until crumbly. Add buttermilk and stir until a dough forms.
     
  3. Sprinkle flour on a board; knead dough until smooth. Roll out dough with a rolling pin to 1/2-inch thickness and cut into 2-inch heart-shaped biscuits. Place on baking sheet.
     
  4. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until light golden. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
