This is one of those recipes I'll be using again and again. I've tried several other biscuit recipes, and I always come back to my tried and true version. The addition of Gainey Vineyard's special seasoning just sends these things over the top. Warmed up with butter??? Absolute Heaven :)
Cheesy Herb Biscuits
2 c. flour (plus more for dusting)
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
7 Tbsp. butter, very cold
1 c. sharp cheddar cheese, grated
2 Tbsp. Gainey Vineyard Rosemary & Garlic Seasoning
1 c. milk
1 Tbsp. butter, melted
Preheat oven to 400°.
Sift flour, baking powder and salt into mixing bowl.
Using a cheese grater, grate butter and add it to the bowl.
Work butter into flour mixture using a pastry blender or two knives in scissor fashion. Combine until butter is fully incorporated and no large pieces remain.
Add seasoning mix and grated cheese. Stir to combine all ingredients evenly.
Pour in milk and stir until mixture forms a dough.
Turn dough out onto floured surface and continue mixing all ingredients together by hand. (Don’t overwork dough). Use the palms of your hands to gently spread dough out. Fold dough back over itself to create layers adding flour as needed.
Cut biscuits out with small biscuit cutter. Place onto a baking sheet (or in cast iron skillet). Brush the tops with melted butter. Bake 20-22 minutes.
