Cheddar Herb Biscuits

I wanted to try a homemade biscuit recipe for a dinner I was making for friends. I turned on the good'ol computer, typed in 'Cheddar Herb Biscuits' a BIZILION recipes came up, I looked through a few and found this one. They were WAY yummier hot out of the oven then they were at room temp.

(This picture was taken BEFORE baking :)


1 1/4 cup buttermilk

1 tablespoon chopped thyme

1 tablespoon chopped rosemary

3 cups all purpose flour

2 tablespoons baking powder

1 1/2 sticks chilled unsalted butter, cut into small cubes

2 tablespoons sugar

2 teaspoons salt

2 cups (8 ounces) grated cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 375° F. Mix buttermilk, thyme and rosemary in a small bowl; let stand for 5 minutes. Whisk flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in medium bowl to blend. Add cheese and butter to the flour mix; rub with fingertips until the mixture resembles fine meal. Add buttermilk mixture and stir until soft clumps form. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; press out to thickness of 1/2 inch. Using 2-inch round cookie cutter, cut biscuits. Transfer biscuits to 2 un-greased baking sheets spacing 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes then reverse position of sheets and bake biscuits until golden brown and cooked through, about 8 minutes longer. Transfer biscuits to racks. Serve warm or at room temperature.
