Cheese Biscuits

These cheese biscuits are perfectly flaky and so easy to make. They make a great side to soups or chili.

It's Christmas freaking Eve people! Are you as ready as I am?

By ready, I really mean I have done the shopping (for the most part) but I have not yet wrapped anything. I'm talking not a single thing I bought is wrapped. That's what I get for spending all the time I have at home baking cookies.

Cheese Biscuits

So I'm taking a break from the cookies, and am making something that I think every Christmas dinner should have: cheese biscuits. These babies are hard pressed to make it through one day. Trust me, I have first-hand experience.

I have literally made these 3 times this week, and I still can't get enough of them. I think I'll need to triple the recipe when I make them on the big day. But even if there isn't enough, these biscuits are done from start to finish in around 20 minutes, so I could be constantly making more without anyone noticing.

What you'll need:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons white sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 2/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2/3 cup milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 425˚F.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, salt sugar baking powder and cream of tartar. Pour into a food processor, and add the shortening. Pulse to mix until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
  3. Stir in the cheese with a fork. Mix in the milk until fully combined.
  4. Turn the dough onto a floured surface, and flatten into a rectangular shape. Cut the dough into squares.
  5. Place the dough onto a ungreased baking sheet, and bake for around 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
