Jarlsberg Cheese Biscuits with Creamy Garlic and Herb Butter

Prep Time: 20 mins
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Serves: Makes about 12 biscuits

Ingredients:

2 cups all purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons shortening
1 cup shredded Jarlsberg cheese
1 cup buttermilk
extra shredded Jarlsberg cheese for topping

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
3. Using a pastry blender or your fingers, mix cold shortening into flour mixture until combined.
4. Quickly blend cold butter into the flour mixture until butter is roughly the size of peas. Add the shredded Jarlsberg cheese and mix until blended.
5. Make a well in the centre of the flour and pour in the buttermilk. Working from the outside in, bring the flour into the centre with a large spoon, scooping and turning the bowl until the buttermilk is incorporated into the flour. Do not over mix.
6. For rustic-style biscuits, drop large tablespoon-sized pieces of dough onto an ungreased baking sheet. Brush the tops with the garlic-herb butter and add some shredded Jarlsberg cheese.
7. Bake for about 12 to 15 minutes. Serve warm with more garlic-herb butter.
