Aged white cheddar and sage biscuits

From Breaking Eggs Beneduck

Cheddar and sage biscuits


  • 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1 cup grated aged white cheddar cheese
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh sage
  • 1 cup milk


In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar, baking soda and salt. Cut in cubed butter with a pastry cutter or two knives until the pieces are about the size of peas. Add cheese and sage and combine. Finally, add milk and stir until the whole mixture is evenly moist and a cumbly dough forms.

On a lightly floured surface, shape the dough into a ball, then flatten the ball with your hand. Roll out the dough to 1 inch thickness. With a cookie cutter or a water glass, cut out round biscuits. Re-roll any scraps into a new ball and repeat until all the dough is used up.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place biscuits on top. Bake in a preheated 425 F oven for 12 – 15 minutes, until golden brown on top. Cool on a wire rack.
