Cheddar Jalapeno Biscuits

The other night I made some roasted chicken and veggies, and wanted something just as warm and tasty to serve with it.  I saw this recipe on, and decided to give some homemade biscuits a try!

These came out awesome! The recipe stated to cut the dough into 8 biscuits, but this recipe can easily make 16.  When cut into 8 pieces, the biscuits were a meal by themselves!

The addition of the jalapeno's added a nice flavor to these, but they would be just as tasty without them too.

The original post can be found here.

Cheddar Jalapeno Biscuits
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 sticks butter (cold)  (3/4 cup)
  • 1/2 cups buttermilk (cold)
  • 1 egg (cold)
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese (medium or strong/old)

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. Mix together the flour, baking powder and salt
  3. Grate the cold butter into the flour, and mix until the butter pieces are evenly distributed in the flour
  4. Mix together the buttermilk and egg in a small bowl, and then add to the flour mixture
  5. Mix together until just combined
  6. Place the cheese and jalapeno in a bowl with some flour, and then mix well
