Just 5 ingredients and 15 minutes is all it takes to bake the flakiest, butteriest, cheddar biscuits you'll ever eat!
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Butter a large baking sheet or round baking pan and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour and sugar. Cut in ½ cup (1 stick or 8 tablespoons) cold butter with a pastry blender or two knives in opposite directions. Add the buttermilk and stir with a sturdy spoon until well combined. Add the cheese and fold it in with the spoon and then your hands until well distributed throughout the dough.
  3. Flatten the dough out to ½-inch thickness on a floured surface. Fold in half and then in half again and flatten back out to ½-inch thickness. Repeat the folding process at least three times to help create all those flaky layers when the biscuits are baked.
  4. Cut dough into rounds with a 2-1/2 inch round dough cutter. Place biscuits about an inch apart in the buttered baking pan/sheet. Gather, press out and cut any remaining dough until all the dough has been formed into biscuits. You should have about 12 biscuits total.
  5. Melt remaining 4 tablespoons butter. Brush each biscuit with the melted butter.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes or until biscuits have risen and are starting to turn a light brown on top.
Notes
Kroger Private Selection Cayenne & Garlic Infused Honey is amazing drizzled over these biscuits!
