Goat Cheese Biscuits

I could put goat cheese in or on anything - salads, omelettes, pasta, pizza, the list goes on and on. So why had I not thought of adding it to biscuits? I am not sure. But, I can now attest that this recipe is amazing and will become a staple side in our house. Enjoy these biscuits with brunch or dinner. We ate them with curried sweet potato soup and they were perfect!

You Will Need:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 Tbsp (2 ounces) cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 4 Tbsp (2 ounces) goat cheese, crumbled
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter, for the pan
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted to top the biscuits

Here We Go:
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt
  • With your fingers incorporate the butter and goat cheese until the flour resembles a coarse, pebbly mixture
  • Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in the buttermilk
  • With a fork, mix together the buttermilk and flour until all of the dry flour disappears
  • Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a small sauce pan or in the microwave and set aside
  • Remove the cast iron from the oven and place one tablespoon of butter in it
  • Work the pat of butter around, greasing the entire pan, including the sides
  • Quickly drop the batter by 1/4-cup onto the non-stick baking sheet spacing biscuits somewhat evenly
  • Brush with melted butter
  • Bake for 14-16 minutes or until slightly golden in color
  • Remove from the oven
  • Let rest for 5 minutes and serve warm

Makes 8
Happy Feasting!

Regular biscuits although good have nothing on these. Love the goat cheese. I would eat about 10 of these at once.

I have never tried goat cheese before and its only not so easily available where I stay. This biscuits does show that the cheese was a perfect choice to be added inside and yes, love the outcome.

Oh yum! Whenever I tell my dad I'm making biscuits for him, he gets excited, and asks for chocolate chip cookies (being English he thinks biscuits=cookies) so I usually end up making cookies for him. But this time, I'll just make these for him and say "now THESE are biscuits."
They look delicious!
