Cheese Biscuit Thins

Yield about 1 1/2 dozen


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2/3 cup (2 1/2 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • Paprika
  • Melted butter or shortening

How to Make It

  1. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; stir well. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle milk evenly over flour mixture, stirring until dry ingredients are moistened.

  2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 4 to 5 times.

  3. Roll dough to a 12- x 10-inch rectangle. Sprinkle cheese and paprika over half the dough, leaving about a 1/4-inch margin at edges. Fold dough over cheese; pinch edges to seal.

  4. Roll dough to a 10- x 8-inch rectangle; cut into 4- x 1-inch strips, and place on a greased baking sheet. Brush each strip with melted butter. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
