These biscuits are easy to whip together and bake up nice. I found this recipe in a Taste of Home book. They are great with ham or turkey dinners. Also good with chili or other favorite soups.
- 1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 cup yellow cornmeal
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 teaspoons sugar (optional)
- 1⁄4-1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup cold butter
- 1⁄2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 cup milk
- In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder, sugar, and salt.
- Cut in butter until mixture is coarse and crumbly.
- Stir in cheese and milk just until moistened.
- Drop by 1/4 cupfuls 2 inches apart onto an ungreased baking sheet.
- Bake at 450 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
- Serve warm with butter.
These turned out terrific. I cut the recipe in half, and made them in the food processor. They were light and fluffy. Served with a pork, hominy, and tomatillo stew.
Super simple and tasty. I used my food processor to cut the butter into the dry ingredients. The texture was so light, unlike any drop biscuit I had made before. I will definitely make these again.
There's nothing that I enjoy more than simple, TASTY recipes that only require ingredients I have on hand but still turn out fantastic! I made these for http://kittencalskitchen.com/forum/index.php?topic=2339.msg44408;topicseen#msg44408 to go with cold gazpacho soup and they smelled amazing and tasted even better, if that's possible! Superb recipe find!
