Today was our last lab for quick breads and the students ended the unit with a bang! All the biscuits that were made today were so good! Biscuits are not the easiest bread to make especially for beginners. At first you are not quite sure how the dough should feel and how much to knead it. And then there is always the question of how much flour to add to the dough to keep it from sticking to your hands. I was very impressed when I talked with each group about what they learned. Here are some of their comments
- These are so easy to make.
- They are better than the drop biscuits that we made from Bisquick.
- We have all the ingredients at home.
- Why would anyone buy those refrigerated things when you can make these?
- You can make these really small , eat two and fool yourself into thinking you are eating more.
- I had no idea that I could bake biscuits that tasted so good.
- We can save money baking biscuits from scratch.
- I want to make these for my mom.
So my mission for this unit is accomplished and we are ready to move on.
You will find the recipe for Basic Biscuits here and to make the Cheese Biscuits make the following changes:
I love using my food processor for grating cheese. It is fast, you can grate a lot and then freeze it. Saves you time later.
For the Cheese Biscuits use 1 cup of Sharp Cheddar . I packed it in the cup so mine were really cheesy!
After cutting shortening into the flour stir the cheese into the flour and shortening. Then add 3/4 cup of milk.
Place dough on a floured surface and knead 2-3 times. Press out dough to about 1 inch thick.
Cut biscuits out with a biscuit cutter and place into a lightly greased pan. Bake at 500 degrees for 10 minutes. Brush with melted butter and enjoy! Happy Baking,

The left them all together in the tray which not only helps to keep them moist but also gives the illusion that they are fresh from the oven and no one else has touched your scones!
the more cheese, the better, i say! i LOVE cheese biscuits (they’re the only reason i ever go to red lobster) and all of these batches look so soft and fluffy. kitchen 5 block 2 gets my vote. 🙂
