DIRECTIONS

  • Pulse butter, flour, salt, cayenne, and cheese in a food processor just until a dough forms. (Do not overwork dough, or biscuits will be tough.) Gather dough into a ball, then flatten into a 5-inch disk. Chill dough, wrapped in plastic wrap, until firm, at least 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Roll out dough into a roughly 14-inch round (about 1/8 inch thick) on a floured surface with a floured rolling pin.
  • Working quickly, cut out rounds with a 2 inch floured cookie cutter and arrange 1/2 inch apart on a buttered large baking sheet.
  • Reroll scraps (but only once; chill first if soft) and cut out more rounds, arranging them on same baking sheet.
  • Prick each round 2 or 3 times with a fork.
  • Bake in middle of oven until golden, about 10 minutes. Transfer biscuits to a rack to cool.
