This recipe is from one of my favorite cooks, Paula Deen! I love her style of cooking, and her outgoing, sweet personality. In this recipe of hers that I'm going to share, she turns a food that most people associate with breakfast into a dinner item. Soft, buttery biscuits with cheddar cheese throughout, go perfectly with the stew I paired them with. They would go nicely with any meal though.
Paula Deen Cheddar Biscuit
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 stick butter, melted
3/4 cup grated sharp Cheddar
1/3 cup butter
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 cup self-rising flour (It's easy to make self rising flour out of all-purpose: Measure the desired amount of flour into a bowl. For each cup of all-purpose flour, add 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Mix to combine)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt together using a fork; cut in butter until it resembles cornmeal.
Add cheese and stir to combine.
Stir in buttermilk and stir just until blended. Do not over stir.
Drop by tablespoonfuls onto a well greased baking sheet.
Brush dough with melted butter, and bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
Makes about 16 biscuits.
