Cheddar Biscuits............really easy!

I love Cheddar Biscuits slathered with butter!
Here's an easy recipe.

1 C flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1/4 tsp granulated sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 stick of butter, cubed (1/4C)
1 C shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/3 C milk

Preheat oven to 450 degrees

In a bowl:
baking powder
Whisk well

Cut in butter until it resembles coarse crumbs ( use a pastry blender)
Fold in cheese
Stir in milk to form a dough

Knead the dough well on a floured board until smooth.
With your hands, pat and press  the dough into a 6 inch square
Cut the 6" square into 9 squares
Place on a baking sheet, ( sprayed with a vegetable cooking spray)

Bake for 10 - 12 minutes
The biscuits should be golden brown

Serve with plenty of butter!

Peace in the Kitchen!
