Cheddar Cheese Bisquick Biscuits
This recipe was a huge disappointment. The biscuits turned out flat and they got quite hard within an hour after baking. Instead of this recipe, I suggest you try either Buttermilk Biscuits (without cheese) or Ham & Cheese Baked-In Biscuits. In this recipe's (and its submitter's) defense, the Bisquick I used was a couple months old and the leavening component may have lost its get-up-and-go, but I had success with the same box just one week earlier. While I appreciate every recipe submission, I have to tell it like it is... these biscuits sucked. (This recipe was submitted in 2010. It was tested and photographed in October 2015.)
- 2 cups Bisquick or similar baking mix
2/3 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup water
3 Tablespoons butter - melted
salt - to taste
How To Make Cheddar Cheese Biscuits Using Bisquick
In a large bowl, combine the baking mix, cheese and water. Mix with a fork until you get a thick doughy consistency.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured flat surface. Roll the dough with a rolling pin to about a 1/2-inch thickness.
Cut out individual biscuits with a biscuit cutter or the mouth of a small glass. Gather remaining scraps of dough into a ball and roll again to get another biscuit or two if possible.
Place biscuits on a baking sheets coated lightly with cooking spray. Brush to top of each biscuit with melted butter and sprinkle a dash of salt over each.
Bake in an oven preheated to 450 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes.
Allow biscuits to cool 5 minutes before serving.
If you don't have Bisquick you can replace it with 2 cups all-purpose flour, 3 teaspoons baking powder, 3/4 teaspoon salt and 2 Tablespoons oil or melted butter.
