These biscuits rise lovely and taste wonderful --- 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese may be added into the flour mixture before adding the beer, yield is only esimated.

As usual very nice recipe Kitten, I wanted to try something differant for DH and this was it, I wasn't disappointedd. Very light, flakey biscuit that went well with butter and my canned blackberry jam. I used butter flavore Crisco for the shorting and that worke well. Just made the hour long refrigeration and glad I did as it gave the yeast in the beer time to rise. We all enjoyed this and will be making again.
