Neiman Marcus Cheddar Cheese Biscuits

Hands-on time 20 mins
Total time 1 hr, 40 mins
Yield Makes about 2 1/2 dozen
Neiman Marcus Cheddar Cheese Biscuits are the perfect addition to a classic lunch-with-the-girls menu.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1 cup (4 oz.) freshly shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • Parchment paper

How to Make It

  1. Whisk together first 3 ingredients in a large bowl. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture resembles small peas and dough is crumbly; stir in cheese. Add buttermilk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.

  2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 3 to 4 times. Place dough in a bowl; cover and chill 1 hour.

  3. Preheat oven to 350°. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Pat or roll dough to 1-inch thickness; cut with a 1 1/2-inch round cutter, and place on parchment paper-lined baking sheets.

  4. Bake at 350° for 20 to 22 minutes or until golden brown.

Cook's Notes

Unbaked biscuits may be frozen up to 1 month. Bake frozen biscuits as directed for 26 to 28 minutes or until golden brown.
