1/3 cup butter, softened and cubed*
2 1/4 cups self-rising flour
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1 cup buttermilk
3 tablespoons melted butter


Prep: 10 Minutes
Bake: 11 Minutes

1. Cut softened butter into flour with a pastry blender or 2 forks just until butter cubes are coated with flour. Using your hands, add cheese, and gently combine until mixture resembles small peas. Stir in buttermilk with a fork just until blended. (Mixture will be wet.)

2. Turn dough out onto a generously floured surface, and pat to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut dough with a well-floured 2-inch round cutter, and place on lightly greased baking sheets.

3. Bake at 450° for 9 to 11 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven, and brush warm biscuits with melted butter. Serve immediately.

*1/3 cup shortening may be substituted.

Note: For testing purposes only, we used White Lily Self Rising Flour.
