Cheesy Biscuits

My daughter and I love sweets, and I have been posting mostly sweet treats on my blog, especially during the winter holidays. But my son has a salty tooth instead of a sweet one. He sometimes complains that I don’t make anything for him. So, this recipe is specifically for him! I haven’t forgotten about you, dear!

Makes about 15
Total time = 20 minutes

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoning salt (or season to your own taste)
  • 2 stalks green onions,  finely chopped
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 450 °F
  2. Sift together flour, baking powder
  3. Add salt and green onions
  4. Pour in milk and vegetable oil, mix until blended, dough is quite sticky
  5. Stir in cheese
  6. Drop about 2 tablespoons each of dough on to cookie sheets lined with parchment paper, spacing 2 inches apart (just shape them roughly, don’t have to be smooth)
  7. Bake for about 10 minutes
  8. Serve warm with butter or cream cheese spread

Buttermilk Biscuits

This is not really a sweet treat but is equally delicious !

Makes about 12

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 and 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons buttermilk
  1. Preheat oven to 425° F
  2. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt
  3. Using a pastry blender or a knife, cut in butter until the mixture resembles bread crumbs
  4. Add buttermilk and stir with a fork to form a dough
  5. Bring and knead dough together with hands on a slightly floured surface
  6. Divide dough into 12 equal pieces
  7. Roll and pat each piece into round “patty”, about 1 inch in thickness
  8. Bake on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper for about 13 minutes or until slightly golden

They taste best when serve warm with butter.  You can make them into cheesy biscuits by adding 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese.
