Herbed Cheese Biscuits

These are the absolutely tastiest biscuits. You have to try them! You can utilize local raw milk and come summertime, you can also utilize fresh herbs. Definitely experiment with different herbs and combinations. I just added in 1 t. generic Italian seasoning. These will go well with various winter stews. Enjoy!

Herbed Cheese Biscuits
2 C. flour
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. mustard powder
1 T. chopped fresh herbs or 1 t. dried herbs
4 T. butter
1 C. shredded cheese (whatever kind you prefer)
3/4 C. sour cream
1/4 C. milk

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, mustard powder and herbs.
3. Using a pastry blender or your fingers, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs and the pieces of butter are the size of peas. Stir in shredded cheese.
4. In a small bowl or measuring cup, mix together sour cream and milk. Add sour cream mixture to the dry mixture. Stir until just combined.
5. Turn dough out onto a well-floured counter and knead a few times with floured hands. Pat dough out with your hands to about one-inch thickness. Cut biscuits using a biscuit cutter or cut into desired shapes with a knife.
6. Bake at 450 degrees for 12-15 minutes until golden brown.

Hi Virginia,

I am a writer for Parenting NH magazine looking to interview area families who try to follow a 100-mile diet (or who try to eat local foods first as much as possible). I would love to chat via phone or email if you would like to be interviewed. I can be reached at jt772@yahoo.com. Thanks!
