Savory Cheese Biscuits
2 cups flour
1 & 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup rendered chicken fat (or palm shortening)
1 cup milk (for drop biscuits - for rolled & cut biscuits use 2/3 C milk)
1 tbsp dill pickle juice
1 cup shredded cheese
1/2 tsp dry mustard powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
Mix flour, soda, salt, mustard, and pepper. Cut shortening into flour mixture. Add milk and pickle juice, and mix enough to moisten all ingredients. Fold in shredded cheese and drop (or roll and cut) onto greased baking sheet. Bake at 425°F (218°C) for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
These rose beautifully too!
|I used homemade pickle juice and my own goat cheese. Yummy!|
