Homestyle Cheddar Biscuits are everything a biscuit should be! Buttery, flaky and speckled with cheddar cheese – you really can’t go wrong! Pulling one of these Homestyle Cheddar Biscuits apart and spreading a pad of butter on or dunking into your favorite stew is dream-like. We couldn’t keep our hands off of these!
Making homemade biscuits doesn’t need to be a daunting task. If you follow along a few simple steps, you can have warm biscuits on your table in no time! Just don’t over-think it and have some fun making these Homestyle Cheddar Biscuits:
How to make these Homestyle Cheddar Biscuits:
First off, you want to make sure that you have all your ingredients prepped and ready to go. Keeping the cold ingredients cold is a key step to a good, flaky biscuit! Start off by “cutting” the butter into the dry ingredients by either using a pastry cutter or your hands until a crumbly, gravel-like texture forms. This is where you’ll want to make sure to work semi-quickly and to not melt the butter. Add in the cheese then the milk and gently fold together until a rough dough forms.
Up next, it’s time to roll the dough out! This is the fun part to roll up your sleeves and go to work. Gently form the dough togeher and roll out onto a lightly floured surface. I like to keep the dough around 1/2 inch thick to have a nice sized biscuit.
Then, you get to cut your biscuits! You can free-hand them like I typically do, or use a 2-inch wide round cookie cutter. Get as many biscuits cut out as you can before folding the scraps back over themselves, re-rolling it out and cutting more biscuits. All you have to do is gently repeat this process until all the dough is used!
Finally, brush the tops of the biscuits with a little melted butter and bake until golden brown and delicious! Just try to resist eating one of these warm from the oven – I dare you! Just kidding, you don’t want to miss out on a warm, flaky, buttery, cheesy biscuit!
How to Serve these Homestyle Cheddar Biscuits:
Serve these Homestyle Cheddar Biscuits warm with some butter or honey, or use them to dunk into your favorite soups (like this Minestrone Soup) or stews! They make a perfect side dish, breakfast (think of a breakfast sandwich with these!!), dinner roll or just to have some yummy biscuits on hand!
John aksed me what brand these biscuits were when he took a bite out them, because they are so darn good! He says: “Perfectly dense, but yet light and airy and just the right amount of cheese.” You gotta try these biscuits out for yourself!
