by MTV News – You have to make the cheese biscuits from scratch.
And you really, really, have to!
This is a recipe for cheese biscuit and is perfect for you when you’re craving something crunchy and creamy and you need something that’s a little bit more filling than a standard biscuit.
This is a simple biscuit made from all the delicious ingredients you need to make a biscuit like this:Biscuit Ingredients:- 3/4 cup all purpose flour*1/4 teaspoon salt*1 teaspoon baking powder*1 cup milk*1-2 tablespoons butter*1 tablespoon vanilla extract*1 egg*1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder (optional)*2 tablespoons melted butter*3/4 cups sour cream*1 large egg*3 tablespoons melted cheese*1 tbsp butter*Combine the flour, salt, baking powder, milk, butter, and vanilla in a large bowl.
Stir in the eggs and sour cream.
Add the melted butter and stir until combined.
The dough will be lumpy, but you’ll get it down to the ground when you mix the ingredients together.
*If you want a thinner biscuit, add a teaspoon or two of flour to the dough mixture.
Use a pastry blender or food processor to combine the dough ingredients into a smooth dough.
Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 1 hour.
If you’re using a mixer, add the milk and the butter at the same time.
The mixture should be smooth and not too lumpy.
When the dough is ready to eat, shape the dough into a log and cut into about 1-inch thick strips.
If you prefer, you can add a couple of tablespoons of sour cream to the biscuit batter, if you like.
Place a few of the biscuits on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze them for about an hour.
Make the Cheese-Biscuits:- Combine the flour mixture with the milk, sour cream, and melted butter.
Mix the dough with your hands until combined and the dough forms a soft ball.
Place the dough on a lightly floured surface.
Make a slight indentation in the dough and roll it out until the dough covers the top of the parchment paper.
Place it back into the fridge to firm up a bit.
Baking the Cheese biscuit:Mix the melted and melted cheese in a bowl with a hand mixer.
Mix until smooth and creamy.
Divide the dough between two baking sheets and chill for 15 minutes.
Remove the biscuits from the dough.
Brush the top with melted butter or spray with nonstick spray.
Bake for 30-40 minutes, until golden brown on top and crispy on the outside.
Serve the cheese biscuits with a dollop of sourcream.
You can also make the biscuits ahead and freeze the rest for up to 2 days, but I prefer making them ahead to store them and freeze before serving.
