Whole Wheat Cheese Biscuits

These biscuits...

Now before I start drooling all over my keyboard and wishing these biscuits lasted for more than the maybe 2 hours after I baked them, I will warn you. Once you make cheese biscuits, you will not be able to stop.

Seriously. It all started the day I made the regular cheese biscuits. One of the rare recipes I make over and over to the point of actually memorizing it. Then, to use up some of my apples, I made apple cheddar cheese biscuits. The variations will never end I tell you!

I can tell you now with full certainty that the only thing stopping me from going vegan and never look back is cheese. I don't know what it is, but I can't live without it.

Now if someone has any suggestions on what kind of cheesy biscuits I could be making next, I would welcome them with open arms. But for now, I'm quite content with these whole wheat ones.

I'm predicting that I'll be making these at least three (or ten) times this month.

What you'll need:

-1 cups all-purpose flour
-1 cup whole wheat 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 flours, 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.

  1. Now I'm drooling over these biscuits!

  2. They look droolworthy, Cathleen.

  3. Totally agreed about the cheese--it's a life necessity! I think some sort of scallion/bacon/smoked cheese combo would be delicious. Just sayin. :)

  4. Wow..these look like great tea treats. I love cheese too - it's even in my fried rice..lol ^.^

  5. These biscuits sound delicious - I love the cheese!

  6. Mmm, these look superb! I know little bits of chorizo or bacon could add a lot of flavour without having to use much, aaaand maybe leek?
    It sounds like these little biscuits don't need improving upon though - want!

  7. Thanks for the warning.. I think I won't try them yet.. :)) no matter how delicious they sound :D

  8. Biscuits stuffed with cheese are the only way to eat biscuits in my opinion!

  9. I'm not sure these biscuits would make it to the table from the oven in my home. Something mysterious would happen on their way over and I'd end up carrying an empty basket with crumbs all over my face.

  10. I'm digging this! I like to make these "lighter" buttermilk biscuits from Cooking Light that uses whole wheat flour too and it is really good. I imagine the addition of cheese would make it about ten times better.

  11. Cathleen, these biscuits sure look good! I won't bake these yet because I'll be a disaster and eat everything up :D

  12. love these cheese biscuits and love your plates lol!!

  13. omg I love biscuits and these looks delicious! I´m also a cheese lover and will definitely give this recipe a try :)

  14. Ahhh I won't be able to live without cheese too. These sound so good!

  15. I could make these ten times a week and not get sick of them. I couldn't live without cheese either.
