Notes from the Test Kitchen:
We like to eat breakfast for dinner sometimes so I made these kickin' little biscuits to go along with the meal. Everyone loved them and they got eaten up fast!

Adjust the heat to your liking. I like my food a bit spicy so next time I will add a little more jalapenos. Also make sure to add additional flour while kneading the dough, 1/2 to 1 cup should do it.


3 c. flour
2 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
6 tsp sugar
1 stick butter
1 c. buttermilk (or milk)
2 eggs
1 tbsp jalapeno; chopped (jar)
1/2 cup shredded chedder cheese

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Mix flour, sugar, salt and baking powder together in a mixing bowl. Cut stick of butter (cold) into tiny pea size chunks and add to dry ingredients. Mix 1 egg and milk in separate bowl then add into mixing bowl with the rest of the ingredients. Finally add your jalapeno and cheese. Knead dough on a flat surface with flour. Cut out biscuits and place on greased cookie sheet. Beat the other egg and brush on top of your biscuits. Bake 12-15 minutes. Cool and serve.

Oh you're welcome. I could never get the butter not get soft while trying to cube it so I tried this tip that I saw on FB. Hope you try it and believe me it makes it easier to get that cold butter in there!

Good Tip Victoria, I do the same Process with Pastry, I just slice it in small pieces with a paring knife. Chilled Butter Makes Pie Crust Flakier.. Never used this method in biscuits, But it sounds logical!! Thanks again for the Tip ;0)

I have made these several times and with each batch they get better and better. Had never had success with a buttermilk biscuit but these are fabulous. Just a tip that helped is freezing your butter then using a cheese grater, grate your cheese into the flour. Doesn't soften from the heat of your hands and that made the difference for me! Happy Baking everyone!!
