Cook Time30 mins
Course: bread
Cuisine: American
Author: Diane @Recipesforourdailybread


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 TB double-acting baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup 1 stick cold unsalted butter grated on a grater.
  • 2 cups Sharp Cheddar cheese Sharp cheddar is a must in these biscuits.
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 3 TB of melted butter to brush on top after removing from the oven


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Add, the butter in a cast-iron skillet or a cast-iron biscuit pan
  • Next, In a large bowl combine the sifted flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
  • Grate the butter over the flour mixture.
  • Cut the butter into the flour mixture. If you do not have a pastry cutter, you can use a large fork. Combine the butter and the flour until the mixture has very fine crumbles.
  • At this point, add the cheese.
  • Make a well in the center of the flour and add the buttermilk and heavy cream.
  • Combine all the ingredients until it forms a soft ball. I like to use my hands to form the ball.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface
  • Roll dough out to 3/4 inch thick and cut with a biscuit cutter or cookie cutter. Don't forget to flour the biscuit cutter. When you cut out a biscuit, turn the cookie cutter only 1/4 of a turn.
  • Place in the cast iron skillet or cookie sheet.
  • Bake 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and brush with melted 1/4 cup butter,1/4 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp garlic powder mixture for garlic biscuits.
