Prep Time10 minutes
Cook Time15 minutes
Total Time25 minutes
Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Servings: 8 biscuits


  • 1 7/8 cups flour (measure two cups less two tablespoons)
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 6 ounces sharp cheddar cheese grated, divided
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream might require more if dough is dry


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with a silpat or parchment papter.
  • Toss about a cup of the cheese with the flour and baking powder in a large bowl. Add the heavy cream and mix by hand. Dough should stick together when squeezed. If it doesn't, more heavy cream can be added by the tablespoon until the dough starts sticking together.
  • Transfer dough to a flour coated surface and pat into a layer that's 3/4 to 1 inch thick. Use a biscuit cutter to cut rounds and transfer to your prepared baking sheet. Top with remaining cheddar.
  • Bake in preheated oven about 15 minutes or until they start to turn golden brown. Remove from oven and serve immediately.
