I saw Paula make this on one of her shows and thought it sounded good, so I tried it and my family really liked it.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt, to taste, and sugar together using a fork; cut in shortening until it resembles cornmeal.
  3. Add cheese.
  4. Stir in buttermilk all at one time just until blended. Do not over stir.
  5. Drop by tablespoon, or use ice cream scoop, onto a well greased baking sheet.
  6. Brush dough with melted butter.
  7. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
  8. Note: it took the biscuits 20 minutes to cook in my oven, but I have and oven that always takes longer to bake than the recipe says.

I could'nt locate my usual cheese scone recipe and decided to try this one. I decided to just use regular white flour, with the listed baking powder and buttermilk knew it was going to be alright. Baking time was about right and I cut mine into 10 pieces, omitted the melted butter at the end. A really good cheese biscuit, thanks!
