    Megohm's Note:

    My favourite biscuit recipe! Crunchy outside, soft, buttery inside, with the addition of CHEESE! An adaptation I made from one of Edna Lewis' recipes. Note: Feel free to use lard or shortening as opposed to butter - I always prefer lard over shortening though.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 8-10

    Yield:

    biscuits

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.
    2. 2
      Put 1 Tbsp butter in a large cast iron skillet, or heavy baking dish, and place in oven.
    3. 3
      In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, 3/4 cup of the cheese, and salt, mix till combined.
    4. 4
      Cut butter in using a pastry cutter or two knives (I use my kitchen-aid, more often than not, with a paddle beater), until it is the consistency of small peas.
    5. 5
      Stir in buttermilk, if too dry or crumbly, add at few splashes more until the dough is workable, but not sticky.
    6. 6
      Take skillet out of the oven.
    7. 7
      On a floured surface, turn dough out, knead no more than 8-10 times, and pat down to about 3/4" thickness. Cut out biscuits with a biscuit cutter or a kitchen glass. Don't bother re-rolling the dough, just leave the odds and ends in the pan as they are as a little treat for yourself. Just to ensure the biscuits aren't tough!
    8. 8
      Prick with the tines of a fork, and brush with beaten egg over the tops.
    9. 9
      Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup of cheese, place in hot skillet.
    10. 10
      Bake 10-12 minutes till golden brown and cheese is bubbly and slightly browned.
