Cheddar Cheese & Sour Cream Biscuits

Cheddar Cheese and Sour Cream Biscuits Adapted from Gourmet

  • 1 ½ cups whole-wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into bits
  • 1 ½ cups grated Cheddar cheese (I am partial to Tillamook)
  • 1 cup sour cream

Preheat oven to 425°F.

Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.

Cut the butter pieces into the flour mixture with a pastry blender or use your fingers (which is much more effective) until well combined – the mixture will be a little dry, not to worry.

Stir in the cheese and sour cream until the mixture forms a sticky dough.  Using a big wooden spoon works well.

Pat dough into 6 ½ inch think biscuits using a well floured surface.  You can also use a biscuit cutter.

Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 12-15 minutes, until golden on top.
