Looking for something different, yet simple, to serve with your next dinner? Try these delicious biscuits.
These biscuits are very much like the ones served at a popular seafood restaurant chain, but I think they taste MUCH better!
1 cup buttermilk
3/4 cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/3 cup all-vegetable shortening
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
2 cups self-rising flour
1/4 stick of melted butter
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
In a medium bowl, mix the flour, salt, sugar & baking powder together with a fork. Using a pastry blender, cut in the shortening until it resembles coarse cornmeal.
Add the cheese, then stir in the buttermilk, all at once; mix until just combined. Do not overmix!
Using an ice cream scoop, scoop out 8 nice sized biscuits onto a baking sheet either lined with parchment or a silicone baking mat.
Bake the biscuits for 15-20 minutes. Remove from the oven and immediately brush the biscuits with melted butter.
If desired, you can add 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon of salt & a pinch of parsley flakes to the melted butter.
These are also delicious served for breakfast. Melt a 1/2 stick of unsalted butter, mix with 2 teaspoons of honey and brush over the freshly baked biscuits!
