Cheddar & Sage Biscuits

IMG_3388
We’re about halfway through the Thanksgiving feast posts! Still to come…green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, gravy, turkey & pie! All the best parts!

These biscuits take things up a notch, not just a plain dinner roll with butter, the sage and cheddar taste great together and it makes your house smell so yummy when they are baking.

I’m not one for labor intensive recipes, so I’ve always stayed away from baking breads, but these were quick and easy.

Cheddar & Sage Biscuits
Makes 12 biscuits
4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for working
2 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp coarse salt
2 cups grated sharp white cheddar (5 1/2 ounces)
2 Tbsp chopped fresh sage
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes
1 1/2 cups buttermilk

1. Preheat oven to 450°. In a food processor, pulse flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add cheddar and sage and pulse to combine. Add butter and pulse until mixture is the texture of coarse meal, with pea-sized pieces of butter remaining. Add buttermilk and pulse until just combined, 2-3 times.
2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead just until it comes together. With a floured rolling pin, roll dough to a 3/4 inch thickness. With a floured 3 inch biscuit cutter, cut out 12 biscuits (reroll and cut scraps).
3. Place biscuits on a baking sheet, 1 1/2 inches apart, and bake until puffed and golden, 12 to 15 minutes. Serve warm.
