I have made lots of different tea biscuits, but couple days ago I decided to add to our dinner of pasta with grilled chicken and vegetables and bake fresh cheese biscuits. They turned out beautiful and were so very tasty, I just have to share the recipe.


Great addition to any dinner or lunch menu - or just as a snack

Best Ever Cheese Biscuits:


  • 2 cups of flour
  • 4 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of salt (you can reduce or totally omit the salt if you wish)
  • 1/4 cup of shortening
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 – 1/2 cups of cheddar cheese, cut into small cubes or shredded
  • Melted butter to brush on the biscuits after baking


  1. Mix flour, baking powder and salt together.
  2. Cut the shortening in with pastry knife or 2 butter knives until it resembles coarse oatmeal
  3. Fold in your cheese cubes until they are nicely coated with flour mixture
  4. Make a well in the centre of dry ingredients and add milk
  5. When you added all the milk, stir the dough until it starts coming free off the side of your bowl
  6. Turn the dough onto floured board and knead gently for a few minutes
  7. Pat the dough into a round shape to fill bottom of a pie plate
  8. Cut into 6 pieces (or 8 if you want smaller biscuits) with pizza cutter
  9. Bake at 450F for about 15 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown
  10. Take out of the oven, leave for about 5 minutes and then brush tops with melted butter

These cheese biscuits turn out beautiful and taste even better
