Chipotle-Cheddar Biscuits


Okay. When I decided to bake these biscuits, I wasn’t intending to post about these. But They.Are.So.Delicious and I now feel it is my dharmic destiny to share this knowledge with you. They are something you might skip over and not bake. They are something I would skip over too. I’m urging you to run out and get the ingredients and make these. Immediately.

The recipe is from Baked: New Frontiers in Baking. And if you have the cookbook you can see why you would skip over these when there are amazing and delectable things such as: The Baked Brownies or Root Beer Cake or Peanut Butter Crispy Bars or Lemon Drop Cake or…..

The only reason I made these biscuits is because when I get a new cookbook and I can’t make up my mind about which recipe to try first,  I start from the beginning and bake my way forward.  The Chipotle-Cheddar Biscuits just happened to be the next recipe in the book.

The biscuits are smokey and spicy and cheesey and easy to make. The only problem I had (other than eating too many) was that they flattened out inthe oven instead of rising like biscuits normally do. It may have been the cheese. The recipe calls for 2 cups of  “tightly” packed grated cheese. I may have packed my cups  too tightly with cheese, but who cares? They were delicious.

You can find the recipe HERE or on page 35  in the book.
