QUICK CHEESE BISCUITS

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
2 tbsp butter
2/3 cup milk

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

In a medium mixing bowl combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.  Stir in the cheese.  Cut the butter into the flour mixture using a pastry blender or two knives until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Using a fork, stir the milk into the flour mixture until a soft dough forms.  Caution:  Do not overmix the dough!

Drop the dough by heaping tablespoons, 1-inch apart, onto an ungreased baking sheet.  Bake at 450 degrees about 15 minutes or until the biscuits are firm to the touch.


Variation: To make biscuits for an Italian dinner, replace the Cheddar cheese with Parmesan cheese and add half a teaspoon of dried basil.
