SAUSAGE CHEESE BISCUITS

This is from King Arthur Flour.

  • 3 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon Pizza Dough Flavor, optional
  • 1/2 cup butter, cut in pats
  • 1 cup yogurt, buttermilk, or sour cream (low-fat is fine)
  • 2 cups cooked, sliced breakfast sausage links (1/2" pieces)
  • 1 cup diced (I suggest shredded) cheddar cheese
Preheat the oven to 425°F.

In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and Pizza Dough Flavor. Add the butter, cut in pats.

Work in the butter till the mixture is crumbly.

Add the sausage and cheese, mixing to distribute. Add the yogurt, buttermilk, or sour cream.

Mix just till everything is evenly moistened.

Transfer the dough to a piece of parchment or a lightly floured work surface. Pat and roll it into an 8" x 10" rectangle about 3/4" thick

Cut the dough into twenty 2" squares.

If you've been working on parchment, simply lift the parchment onto a baking sheet. Separate the biscuits so there's about 1" between them. If the biscuits aren't on parchment, space them on a lightly greased baking sheet, leaving about 1" between them.

Bake the biscuits for 20 to 25 minutes, or until they're a medium- to deep-golden brown.

Remove the biscuits from the oven, and cool them on a rack briefly. Serve warm.

Yield: 20 biscuits.
