Cheddar Biscuits Can Equal Big Discounts

Spring is here and the weather is getting warmer. Time for some fun bike riding. Girls, here's a great hint if you have a bike which needs work. Men love biscuits. It makes them feel all old timey, like cowboys on the range. Put on a cute skirt and make a plate of biscuits and wheel that rusty hunk to the shop. Flash some smiles, whip out the biscuits and get some discounts!

Here's a cut above your average biscuit to help seal the deal.

Cheddar Biscuits with Sun Dried Tomatoes
  • 1 3/4 c. flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 2 Tbs Parmesan cheese
  • 4-6 Tbs chilled butter
  • 3/4 c. milk
  • 1/4 c. shredded cheddar
  • 1/4 c. sun dried tomatoes, chopped

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Mix dry ingredients and Parmesan cheese. Using a fork or pastry cutter, mix butter into the dry ingredients until chunky. Add milk and mix until dry ingredients stick together to form a rough dough. Don't over work it. Add tomatoes and mix.

On a floured surfaced, roll dough out about 1/2" - 3/4" thick. Cut out biscuits, using a circular cookie cutter or juice glass with approx. 2" diameter and place on a baking sheet.

Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Remove tray from oven and sprinkle biscuits with cheddar cheese. Place back in the oven for 2-5 more minutes until biscuits are golden and cheese is melted.

I love biscuits! The problem is my wife doesn't. I never make them because they only taste good fresh. Do you have any tricks for making taste good a few days later. Can you freeze them?
