Recipe: Cheddar Buttermilk Biscuits

cheddar buttermilk biscuits

What is better than warm biscuits straight out of the oven? Not many things. I had my beautiful friend’s beautiful 1 year old for the morning today and she was perfectly angelic and lovely. My two Cyclones, however, were in full force pushing each others buttons, screaming at each other, yet too in love to play separately. So it felt like a long morning. One that should end in comfort food. I also had some buttermilk to use up. This recipe is very easy, the biscuits were ready in 15 minutes and all three of the girls loved them. Enjoy!

Cheddar Buttermilk Biscuits

Makes about 10

1/4 cup of butter, melted

2 cups of spelt flour, plus more for dusting counter

1 tbs baking powder

1/2 tsp coarse sea salt

1 1/4 cups of buttermilk

1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar(the sharper the better)

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat oven to 425. Sift together dry ingredients in a large bowl. Toss in buttermilk and cheese and stir until dough forms. Turn out onto floured counter and press into a disk about 1 inch thick. Cut with a round glass, about 4 inches in diameter. Place on baking sheet. Brush generously with melted butter. Bake for about 15 minutes until turning golden. Serve warm!

    These are amazing and so fast to make!! Had an impromptu guest for lunch and with soup already made, these were the perfect accompaniment. Didn’t have buttermilk so added vinegar to my milk, and it worked perfectly…Love your recipes!!
