Beer and Cheese Biscuits
Super fluffy and cheesy drop biscuits, with the extra special ingredient...beer! You just can't go wrong with these for breakfast
Servings: 12 biscuits
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 8 tablespoons butter unsalted, cold
- 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese shredded
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1/2 cup beer (light beers are best)
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a large bowl. Add the butter and use a fork or pastry blender to work it into the flour mixture until it resembles small pebbles. I usually give up and end up using my hands. Much easier :)
Add the cheddar and toss lightly. Add the buttermilk and beer and stir in with a wooden spoon just to combine. Don't over-mix! We want these light and fluffy.
Using a 1/4 cup measure, scoop the dough onto the baking sheet, leaving about 1 1/2 inches between biscuits.
Bake until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Serve warm.
