I'm a southern girl and no self respecting southern girl can say no to a biscuit. Add cheese and you will hear me screaming OH YEAH! It's a cool spring night and what could be better than a hot flaky, cheesy biscuit. Biscuits hot out of the oven are one of the world best in comfort food. We won't think about the pounds they will also bring. Tonight is all about comfort and taste.
Maybe there will be a biscuit or two left over for breakfast tomorrow morning. I wouldn't plan on it though.
Cheddar Cheese Pan Biscuits
1/3 cup butter
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups (6 oz) shredded cheddar cheese (the sharper the better)
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
Heat oven to 400. In a 9 inch square baking pan melt butter in oven (3-5 minutes). Meanwhile in a medium bowl combine all ingredients except milk. Stir in milk until just moistened. Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; knead 10 times or until smooth. Pat or roll dough into a 12x6 inch rectangle. Cut into 12 strips (1 inch).
Dip each strip into melted butter in pan. Fold strip in half. Place folded strips in 2 rows in the same pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned.
