White Cheddar Buttermilk Biscuits

  • Author: adapted from Joy The Baker
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 15 mins
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 12 1x


Units Scale
  • 3 cups AP flour
  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup cold butter, cut into small cubes
  • 2/3 cup shredded white cheddar cheese
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup cold buttermilk


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400F.
  2. Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Add the shredded cheese, then cut in the butter. When there are no chunks of butter larger than a pea, add the egg and buttermilk. Gently mix until mostly incorporated (it's okay to still be a bit crumbly).
  4. Turn the dough out onto the counter and use your hands to bring it together and distribute the moisture — but don't overwork it! Shape into a 1" tall rectangle, and cut into 12 equal pieces.
  5. Bake for 15-17 minutes, or until the tops are golden and the centers are fully cooked.
