Cheddar-Thyme Flaky Biscuits

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and cream of tartar. Cut in butter using a pastry cutter or a fork until it is the size of peas. Make a well in the center of the mixture and measure the milk, cheese and thyme into the bowl. Gently mix until a soft dough forms.

Roll or pat out on a floured surface to 3/4 inch thick. Cut into circles and place on a baking sheet.

Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the bottoms of the biscuits are golden brown.
