Special ep. with biscuits

Well, we have another special recipe from Reese’s book, Cheddar Biscuits, from Oana. ?

Many recipes in the book caught my eye, especially salads, but until the strawberries’ season, we make Cheddar Biscuits. ?

I also found this type of cheese in the grocery store, not exactly like the one described in the recipe, mine was sweeter and not very orange, but don’t worry, I realized that if I shoot the biscuits under the light from the hood, I get the right shade :))) Otherwise they are slightly pale. ?

I was nervous because the instructions were long (in the end the main idea is not to knead them like cake… :)), but they came out good, greasy and fluffy, I’m going to do them next time when I have guests. ? I put some cheese and white wine on the table and it’s called that I tried. :)))

I got about 30, I think they are much smaller than the original, but that’s how I had the shape and I must admit that I did not measure the dough when I stretched it to be exactly half an inch. :)) And I got a plump snake like a kind of bread that I never photographed because it was not very photogenic, I ate it quickly. ?

I take this opportunity to thank Claudia for the idea and to express my enthusiasm and commitment. ?

The recipe: 2 cups flour, 2 tbsp. baking powder, 1 tbsp. baking soda, a pinch of salt mixed; then add 6 tablespoons of cold butter cubes (approx. 85g), 3/4 cup grated cedar cheese, 1 cup yogurt and 1/4 cup melted butter. The formed dough is stretched and wrapped in two and once again in two; the process is repeated once more, after which it is stretched and cut. Bake for 20 minutes on high heat – 220 degrees.

The recipe is from the first book proposed at the January / February cookingbookclub Whiskey in a Teacup: What Growing Up in the South Taught Me About Life, Love & Baking Biscuits by Reese Witherspoon. The next book comes out in early March. 🙂
