I often serve my family these warm cheddar biscuits with a hearty breakfast of bacon and eggs. They freeze well, too. —Colleen Horudko, Warman, Saskatchewan


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 1 cup buttermilk


  1. In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in cheese and shortening until crumbly. Add buttermilk; stir until just moistened.
  2. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead 8-10 times. Roll out to 1/2-in. thickness; cut with a 2-1/2-in. biscuit cutter. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
