Gouda Biscuits

Tender biscuits brimming with flavor and decadent gouda cheese!

Makes 12

You will need:
20 oz all-purpose flour
1½ teaspoons cream of tartar
2 teaspoons baking soda
1½ teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper, ground
1 teaspoon basil, dried (if using
fresh, use about 2 tablespoons)
8 oz butter, unsalted
1½ cups milk
¾ cups gouda cheese, cubed
2 tomatoes, cubed
3 spring onions, chopped

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Whisk together flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, salt, pepper, and basil in bowl.
  3. Using your hands, rub in the butter leaving pea-sized chunks.
  4. Add tomatoes, spring onion, jalapeno, and cheese.
  5. Add milk and mix with hands until it comes together. You don’t want to overmix the dough—you want flaky biscuits and this happens when your dough is not overworked.
  6. Put the dough on a counter and roll out with a little flour and a rolling pin.
  7. Fold over onto itself and roll lightly together.
  8. Use a round cutter, cup, or knife to cut squares and transfer to a lined sheet pan.
  9. Bake for about 10 minutes until done.

If you don’t have spring onions, scallions would be a great substitute!
