Blue Cheese Biscuits

  • 1 ¾ cups all purpose flour (and extra for work surface)
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ cup crumbled blue cheese
  • ¼ cup cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
  • 2/3 cup milk

Preheat oven to 425°

Line baking sheet with parchment paper or grease with butter.

Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt, then freeze for 10-minutes. Really cold ingredients make this work best.

Remove from the freezer and cut in the cheese and butter until the mixture has coarse pea-sized lumps.  Slowly add the milk and stir with a fork.

Put dough on floured surface and knead three-four times.

Gently press out to ½ inch thickness.

Use a floured 2-inch biscuit cutter or glass rim to cut the biscuits. Reroll the dough as needed.

Place biscuits on baking sheet, bake until golden brown, 12-15 minutes.
