"These biscuits have an amazing aroma and taste that will turn any grump into a jolly lad! They are crispy on the outside, yet soft and puffy in the center. They freeze well too, for making large batches. This recipe is best when hand made, so try not to be tempted by your mixers. Trust me, it will pay off in the end. Buy block cheese and grate it by hand for best quality. I use a medium size grate. I do NOT recommend using fine grated cheeses."

Directions

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Using olive oil, grease a baking sheet.
  2. With a fork, mix together the flour, baking powder, parsley, thyme, salt, sugar, Colby-Monterey Jack cheese, and white Cheddar cheese together in a bowl. Cut the butter into the flour mixture in coarse chunks, then use the fork to further cut the butter into the flour-cheese mixture until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Lightly stir in the milk just until the dough holds together.
  3. Drop the batter by heaping 1/8-cup measuring cup onto the prepared baking sheet, and bake in the preheated oven until risen and golden brown, 20 to 30 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes
  • Baking times vary depending on your type of oven and elevation. I suggest you start watching the biscuits around 12 minutes into baking time and checking on them every 5 minutes after that. I am using a gas oven on the 3rd floor of an apartment. It takes mine about 30 minutes to bake.
  • I use a 1/8 measuring cup to spoon out my biscuits.

Such an easy recipe, and they came out great. I didn't have any white cheese, so I just used shredded Sharp cheese. I ended up baking 20 minutes.

This is the best biscuit recipe I've ever tried -- and believe me, I've tried a bunch! I use half cake flour and half bread flour, which make the biscuits lighter and fluffier. I've also played around with various cheeses and herbs with great success. It's an easy and versatile recipe, and quite a crowd pleaser!
