This recipe for my Savory Cheddar Cheese Biscuits is especially wonderful with Cheddar cheese helped along with rosemary, crushed red pepper flakes and just a sprinkling of basil and black pepper to make any meal special with how the flavor pops in your mouth.

Servings: 8
  • 1-3/4 cups of Cheddar cheese grated
  • 2-1/2 cups sifted flour
  • 1/3 cup of canola oil
  • 3 teaspoons of baking powder leveled
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 3/4 cup of milk
  • ½ teaspoons of crushed red pepper
  • ½ teaspoons of dried rosemary
  • sprinkle of dried basil about 1/4 teaspoon
  • sprinkle of black pepper about 1/4 teaspoon
  1. Sift the flour, baking power, salt, sugar, red pepper, and rosemary together in your mixing bowl.
  2. Stir together in another mixing bowl, the oil, milk, and grated cheese until well combined before adding to the dry ingredients.

  3. Gently stir the combined ingredients with your fork to mix and then shaping into a pliable dough ball.

  4. Lightly flour your working surface or a sheet of waxed paper to roll out a large circle.

    I cut a big X across for four big pieces and further divide with a line across or another X for eight pieces.

  5. Transfer your shaped biscuits to a greased cookie sheet where you finish by sprinkling with the dried basil and black pepper before baking in a 350-degree oven for about 15 to 20 minutes, depending on how your oven is regulated.
  6. Test with a toothpick, slender knife or a cake tester to see if anything sticks telling if your biscuits are done. They should be lightly golden brown on the bottom.
