Easy Cheese Biscuits

These are the best cheese biscuits and are super easy to make. This is a Kraft recipe that I actually haven't modified (*shock*), except for once when I threw in some dried herbs just for variety.

Tip of the day: Instead of trying to cut in the butter, take it straight from the fridge and grate it into the flour mixture with a cheese grater. All you have to do is mix it with a wooden spoon and you're good to go!

The original recipe says it makes 9 servings, but I double it just for our family alone. I still cut it into 9 portions, but they're pretty big.

Easy Cheese Biscuits

1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1/4 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup cold butter
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/3 cup milk

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Mix flour, baking powder, cream of tartar, sugar and salt. Cut in butter (or grate and add - see note above) until mixture resembles course crumbs. Stir in cheddar cheese. Add milk; stir until mixture forms soft dough.

Place on lightly floured surface and knead 6-8 times until smooth. Pat dough into a square and cut into nine squares. Place on baking sheet and bake 10-12 minutes, until golden brown. Enjoy!
