While working this morning, I daydreamed about what I was going to eat for lunch. Being a day that Riley is in daycare all day, I was able to make something that I wouldn’t have to share. I couldn’t think of anything easy that I wanted to make. Just as I thought I was going to be eating another tortilla pizza, I saw the recipe for these Cheese Bomb Biscuits.
They seemed like they would be easy enough to make. I knew I had the ingredients to make them as long as I used a different cheese. I was torn between mozzarella and cheddar . I polled a few friends that I had been chatting with at the time and cheddar won out.
I cut some cheddar off the big block I had and tossed it into my food processor. While it was being processed, I sifted my flour mix into a small bowl. (Well, technically I used my 4 cup pyrex measuring cup cause it was clean and close by.)
When the cheese was ready, I added it & all the dry ingredients together. Add the Shortening and mix with the dry ingredients till little pea size balls are formed. Next you add in your heavy cream & milk. (If you are using the milk.)
After you have combined all the ingredients, you can start “dropping” your biscuit dough onto the tray. I use my wooden spoon and scooped out amounts slightly smaller than a tennis ball. Leave a bit of space between them as they do expand a bit as baking.
Bake at 450 degrees for about 15 minutes. Mine looked good at 13 minutes.
I did end up sharing the biscuits with Riley & my dad. They both loved them.
