These are sure to please and are pleasing because they are so easy! All you need are normal pantry baking items, cheddar cheese(s) and a package of Halladay’s Cheddar Ale Dip mix, which is coincidentally available at Gifts To Go.
Here goes for instructions: Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine:
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 1 TBSP baking powder
- 1 TBSP sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 3/4 tsp cream of tartar
- 4 TBSP Halladay’s Cheddar Ale Dip mix (little over half the package, but don’t worry the packages are resealable)
Using a mixer, blend in 3/4 cup butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- 1/2 cup shredded extra-sharp white cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
Make an indentation in the flour mixture and add 1 cup milk all at once. Using a fork, stir just until the mixture is moist.
Roll the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently until dough holds together. Cut dough into 2 1/2 inch rounds that are about 3/4 inch thick. Place on ungreased baking sheet.
Bake 10-14 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 12 biscuits. Yum.
