These are amazing biscuits to serve with dinner. Would be a great enhancement to the Ginger Lamb Loin dinner. This recipe makes 12 biscuits.
- 6 tbsp butter, melted
- 3 3/4 cups flour
- 1 1/2 tbsp baking powder
- 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- generous pinch of salt
- 1/2 cup cold butter, cut in small cubes
- 2 1/2 cups McLaren’s cheese (red tub)
- 1 3/4 cups buttermilk
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Brush large muffin tins with the melted butter, reserve remaining to brush on the baked biscuits.
In a mixer, pulse the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt to combine. Add 1/2 cup of the chilled butter again pulsing until coarse meal forms. Transfer to a large bowl and fold in the cheese. This cheese must be broken into smaller pieces. It is so creamy it won’t grate.
Add the buttermilk and mix only until blended. This will be sticky. Divide into the muffin tins (approximately 1/2 cup each).
Bake until golden brown (25-30 minutes) and brush with remaining melted butter. Let them cool in the pan for about 10 minutes and serve warm.
In a word…scrumptuous.
