Betty demonstrates how to make Cheddar Cayenne Biscuits. These are spicy biscuits containing Cheddar cheese and chopped pecans.
|Cold butter||1/2 Cup (8 tbs) , cut into small cubes|
|Cheddar cheese||2 Cup (32 tbs) , finely shredded|
|Cayenne pepper||1/2 Teaspoon|
|Chopped pecans||1/2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Milk||3/4 Cup (12 tbs)|
|Melted butter||2 Tablespoon (for greasing)|
|Coarse salt||1/2 Teaspoon|
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
In a large bowl, use a pastry blender to cut butter into flour.
Also, cut in shredded Cheddar cheese.
Stir in cayenne pepper and pecans.
Add milk and mix just until a ball forms.
Place ball of dough on clean surface that has been sprinkled with flour. Knead a few times and flatten dough slightly.
On floured surface, use a rolling pin to roll the dough to ½-inch thickness. Cut with a 2-inch to 2 ¼-inch biscuit cutter.
Place biscuits in an ungreased baking pan. Brush each biscuit top with a small amount of butter and sprinkle with a small amount of coarse salt. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until golden brown.
Remove from oven and transfer immediately to a nice serving plate.
