Cheese Biscuits

Cheese Biscuits, RRR 1, pg. 37

I love biscuits for breakfast and these were perfect for the early St. Patrick’s day parade! They are so cheesy and great for any day though!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound American cheese
  • 1/4 pound butter
  • 1/3 cup cool water
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika

Instructions

Cream the cheese and butter. Add water. Add dry ingredients sifted together. Let stand in refrigerator for 2 hours. Roll out thin, cut, and bake in 450 degree oven about 10-12 minutes. Makes about 20 small biscuits. Cut smaller, these are good for cocktail parties and coffees.

Here is a picture of the finished biscuits.

Yay it’s finally fall! My favorite season! Since it’s fall, I decided it was time for some pumpkin! These would be great after game-day or even to serve at game-day!

Adam’s Autumn Biscuits, RRR 3, pg 97

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup margarine, chilled and cut into small bits
  • One 16 ounce can unsweetened pumpkin purée
  • 2 tablespoons 1% or less buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup white raisins
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

Instructions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt, brown sugar, orange zest, cinnamon, and nutmeg into a mixing bowl. Using a pastry blender or food processor, cut the margarine into the four mixture until it resembles very coarse meal. Add pumpkin and raisins. Pat the dough into 1/2 inch thickness on a well-floured surface. Cut into using a floured 1 inch cutter. Place biscuits on baking sheet sprayed with vegetable oil cooking spray. Brush biscuits with milk and top with one teaspoon of brown sugar per biscuit.

Yield: 24 biscuits

I baked for about 18 minutes in the oven. The biscuits were a different consistency than I am used to, but very tasty! Great fall treat! Below are some pictures of the biscuits. Enjoy!
