  • 2 cups all-purpose flour plus extra for dusting
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 stick unsalted butter cut into small cubes
  • 1 tsp honey or sugar
  • 8 oz buttermilk
  • ½ cup grated smoked cheddar
  • ½ cup grated sharp cheddar
  • 1 large jalapeno pepper grated


  • Combine flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, sugar (if using honey, add with buttermilk) in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse a few times to combine.
  • Add butter to the flour mixture and pulse until it resembles wet sand with a few pea-sized pieces of butter remaining.
  • Add the flour-butter mixture to a large bowl, then add cheeses, jalapeno.
  • Add buttermilk mixture in 2 to 3 ounces until it is incorporated; all of the liquid may not be used. Depending on your flour, you might need an ounce or two more.
  • Lightly flour your workspace, drop your dough, and knead until just combined about 3 to 6 times.
  • Flour a rolling pin and roll dough into a rectangle about an inch in thickness. Fold the dough like you would a letter. Repeat this process twice more.
  • Cover and rest the dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  • In the meanwhile, preheat the oven to 425 degrees f.
  • Uncover and roll out once again to about an inch thickness.
  • Cut out the biscuits using a floured 2.5 inch round cutter. Do not twist. Re-roll and cut only once if needed.
  • Bake on an unlined cookie sheet or 8 -inch or 10-inch buttered cast-iron skillet for 7 minutes at 425, then drop the heat to 375 and bake another 7 to 10 minutes.


If you do not have a food processor, use a whisk to combine ingredients first, then use a pastry blender or two forks to cut the butter into the flour.
