cheesebiscuits.jpg I was inspired to make these biscuits by Buttermilk Biscuits with Goat Cheese and Chive from Simply Recipes. I didn’t have the ingredients on hand that the author did, so I improvised.

  • 1 1/2 cups freshly ground soft white wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup freshly ground barley flour
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 4oz grated cheese (I used a sharp cheddar)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon

Combine wheat and barley flour with nutmeg, garlic powder, and tarragon. Cut in butter with a pastry blender. Stir in grated cheese. Make a well in the center and pour in the buttermilk. Stir until just mixed and then squash together by hand into a ball. Let sit a room temperature for 12-24 hours.

Flatten dough a bit and sprinkle baking powder, baking soda, and salt over the top. Knead gently into the dough 10 times.

Roll out into a circle and cut into 8 pieces like you would a pie. Or you can use a biscuit cutter. Brush with buttermilk. Let rest for 10 minutes.

Bake at 425 degrees for 12-14 minutes.
