Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Cut in shortening with a knife or pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir Cheddar cheese and chives into flour mixture; gradually stir in milk to form a soft dough.
  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and with floured hands, knead until smooth, about 15 times. Roll dough out to a 1-inch thickness with a floured rolling pin. Cut biscuits with a 2 1/2-inch round cookie cutter; place onto an ungreased baking sheet. Press dough trimmings together, roll out again, and cut remaining dough into rounds.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes.

Loved these... I got 10 biscuits. Popped the bag in the freezer for dinners. Defrosted one tonight.. just as yummy. Make the entire batch when you make them... they froze well

My husband had a fancy for cheese biscuits and made these tonight. He made them smaller to go with dinner and I must say I was very impressed. Very scrumptious! I popped the remaining biscuits in the freezer. He can make these anytime he likes. Thank you hubby.. Very nice!!

This recipe is spot on! Just like my mom (from Nova Scotia) makes! I made this recipe twice, using lard as in the instructions, and the second time with butter as a replacement for the lard. You can lower the lard/butter amount to 1/4 cup if you want to save a few calories. You can also be a bit more generous with the shredded cheese, if you like.
