Cheese biscuits-- quick easy and tasty!

I began getting ruthless with my deep freeze a while ago and these are the only things I have baked in three weeks. I found an abundance of breads I baked then froze and have been eating my way through.

I bookmarked this recipe some time ago and finally got around to baking a half batch. this batch I rolled out, shaped a rectangle and cut the biscuits into squares using a butter knife, then baked on a parchment covered pan. Quick, easy and tasty!

My batch:

1 C flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 TBS sugar

1 C grated sharp cheddar

1/4 C + 2 Tbs milk

2 Tbs oil

Mix the dry and wet ingredients and combine. Credit where it is due, here is a link to the recipe:

How you cut it made it look unique from other biscuits. This one saves butter but generous on the cheese, must taste great!

Hey give them a try. I just whipped up a 1/4 batch as they are best fresh and will go with my leftover cannelloni.  Well butter is fine, but maple syrup with sharp cheddar??? I will let you know how it works out, but am inclined to go with Sweet Baby Ray's original BBQ sauce. Then there is no accounting for taste.

Happy baking! Ski
