  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and cream of tartar. Cut in butter using a pastry cutter or a fork until it is the size of peas. Make a well in the center of the mixture and measure the milk, cheese and thyme into the bowl. Gently mix until a soft dough forms.
  3. Roll or pat out on a floured surface to 3/4 inch thick. Cut into circles and place on a baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the bottoms of the biscuits are golden brown.

Made these last night with some beef brisket. Cut back on the thyme and found that the sugar made them a little too sweet for my taste. A tip for everyone - put your butter in the freezer for ...

First time biscuit maker! I really liked them. Didn’t use thyme or cream of tartar. I used block cheddar and I shredded it myself, made the biscuits tastier. The dough was incredible easier to w...

Superb! If the limit were not 5 stars, I could have given it a lot more. I happened to have some cheddar cheese and fresh thyme on hand or I might not have made this - and I'm so glad I did - it...

I've been searching for the perfect biscuit for a while now, and i've just found it. Flavourful, moist but still flaky, these were delicious! I'd make these again at the drop of a hat. I did hav...

A little too sweet, but otherwise very good. Nice texture and I love the cheddar-thyme combo. Great with beef stew.

These were so delicious. They are just like the biscuits served at Red Lobster seafood restaurant.

These were tasty and baked up great. I think the 3T of sugar was a little too sweet for me, as I was making the biscuits for sausage/gravy at breakfast. Next time I would use less sugar.
