Foodie Friday- Cheese Biscuits

Cheese Biscuits
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour 
  • 4 tsp baking powder 
  • 1 1/2 tbsp minced onion
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp crushed dried rosemary
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper
  • 1/4 cup cold butter
  • 1 cup grated extra sharp cheddar cheese 
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup heavy cream
Instructions: In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, onion, salt, thyme, rosemary, and red pepper; mix. Add the butter and cut in with a pastry blender until fine crumbs are formed. Add the cheeses and cream and stir until just mixed. Turn out on a floured surface and lightly knead 8 turns. Roll out, and using a 2 inch cutter, cut out 24 biscuits. Transfer to a greased baking sheet and bake at 425 for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.
