This is from one found on http://nobodyspoet.blogspot.com/. That one called for goat cheese, which for some is fairly strong, and the grated cheese on top was Parmesan. A person preferring blue cheese tried a variation. Using the cast iron skillet is important – it’s not the same if a cookie sheet is used.
2 cups self-rising flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons cold butter
4 tablespoons blue cheese
1 cup buttermilk
garlic butter, to grease pan and top biscuits
1/4 cup grated blue cheese
Preheat oven to 425°F Place a 10-inch cast iron pan into the oven while it is preheating. Place flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder into a medium-sized bowl. Cut in the butter and goat cheese. Make a well in the middle of the ingredients and pour in the milk. Stir until the mix is moistened, adding an extra tablespoon of milk if needed.
Remove the hot skillet from the oven and place a tablespoon of garlic butter into it. When the butter has melted, drop 1/4 cupfuls of batter into the pan. Brush the tops of the biscuits with melted garlic butter. Bake from 14–16 minutes until browned on the top and bottom. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the grated cheese.
These are great with a salad, whether your salad dressing is blue cheese or not. Try without the garlic and use your favorite cheese to create different flavors. That’s the joy of varying recipes to fit your family.
