Cheddar Biscuits

Cheddar Biscuits

Watch the video for this recipe:

There is something about cheese appetizers that always attract me like a magnet. The baked cheese is always soo good, and enrich every dish with it's unique flavor. A friend of mine told me about these amazing cheddar biscuits and since then I've been eager to try them out as I was sure I will love them. What not to like: buttery, flaky, garlicky and cheesy biscuits... one of the best combinations ever and they do look really appetizing as well.

I added some grated cheese on top of each, as while baking it forms a really crusty flavorful top and the interior remains soft and fluffy. Really loved the extra garlic butter mixture on top, it really enhances all the flavors. I've made these cheddar biscuits for a couple of times now and every time they were finished before having time to cool :) They are best served right after you take them out of the oven, really love the steam that comes out when you break in smaller pieces ... it is indeed a wonderful appetizer. For me they can easily make a meal if served alongside a fresh salad.

What I love the most is that they are really quick, are done in a matter of minutes, with ingredients you always have on hand. If you don't have buttermilk you can always substitute with some yogurt and milk, try different type of cheese, and so on, just give these cheddar biscuits a try and see how delicious they are.

  • Makes about 10-12 biscuits
  • 2 cups (250g) flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp (10g) baking powder
  • 1 tbsp (15g) sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 5 tbsp (70 g) cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
  • 3/4 cup (200g) buttermilk, cold
  • 1 cup (100g) matured cheddar cheese, grated
  • For brushing the tops
  • 2 tbsp (30g) melted butter
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  1. Preheat oven to 400 F (200 C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium-large bowl whisk together flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and garlic powder. Add the butter cubes, and using a pastry cutter or fork cut the butter until the pieces are no bigger than peas.
  3. Add the grated cheese and just give a quick stir to combine with the flour mixture. Incorporate the cold buttermilk until just combined, don't overmix.
  4. Take large spoons of mixture and with the help of another tablespoon place them on the prepared baking sheet. Optional sprinkle some grated cheese on top of each.
  5. Bake for about 15-18 minutes until golden brown.
  6. While they bake, prepare the butter mixture. Melt the butter into a small sauce pan, add garlic, parsley and salt and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat.
  7. Brush the tops of the biscuits with butter mixture and serve hot.

Dear Ella, this looks delicious! Does the biscuits freeze well, I might eat 1 or 2 and save the rest in the freezer would that be okay? thank you.

I am sure they can freeze well.. just let them cool before freezing and they will be perfect.

I am making these right now, I felt so excited when I saw this recipe last night. Just looking at the ingredients made me sure it would be wonderful. And it is! I couldn't help eat two right after they came out of the oven. Thanks Ella, you always have the best recipes!

So glad you tried them out... we really loved them too.. almost ate them all before cooling completely :)

You say 2 cups of flour which is 500 grams, not 250. I am making them right now with 1 cup of flour, so I hope they turn out alright! I have made your Nutella cheesecake (TWICE!) and many of your other recipes. We love them!

The cup I am referring is the one used in US measurements and a cup has a capacity of 240 ml. If you fill it with flour over a kitchen scale you will see it has only 125 g of flour. I am so glad to hear you tried the Nutella Cheesecake and enjoyed it:) hope the biscuits turned good for you as well:)

Dear Ella, I wouls like to make them ahead, I am wondering whether they can be backed and reheated after defrosted. If so, tell me the oven temperature and if they are still so good as fresh baked :-) I need a huge badge for 14 people who are coming home for Christmas. Thanks!!! Sívlia.

Hello Silvia.

Yes, you can reheat after defrosting, at 400 F (200 C), for few minutes. They should be just as good.
