Very addictive and wonderful served warm. Cheese can be omitted for traditional tea biscuits!

Made a batch of these a few weeks ago. They turned out so deliciously cheesy and flakey that I made 2 batches today. Great with soups, stews and chowders. Made my biscuits using butter instead of shortening and I also used a larger biscuit cutter to make slightly larger biscuits. Using my cutter I usually get 12-13 biscuits. They are so good.
