Breaking news: The best cheese tea biscuits ever!
January 15, 2011
Do you like carbs? Do you like cheese? Do you like warm baked goods with a little bit of butter? Then you absolutely have to make these biscuits. I mean it.
I found this recipe in Canadian Living magazine under the Cheez Whiz Challenge. I decided to make it for two reasons: a) I recently bought some Cheez Whiz because it was on sale and I wanted it with celery, and b) because I have always loved cheese tea biscuits (I have a British grandmother, what do you expect?)
They’re mouth-watering. I cannot get over how delicious they were. And easy! I served them at book club and they were all gone. There are very few recipes that I stumble across and I’m blow away by them , and this is definitely one of them! Please please please make these. You will thank me (just like you did for those Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins!)
Julia’s Cheese Tea Biscuits
Adapted from the 2010 Cheez Whiz Challenge (Canadian Living)
2 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup shredded cheese (I used marble, but any cheese will do)
1/2 cup Cheez Whiz
1/4 cup shortening
1 cup milk
Stir together first three ingredients. Cut in shredded cheese and Cheez Whiz. Cut in shortening until crumbly. Stir in milk until mixture is moist. Drop by spoonfuls onto lined baking sheet. Bake at 425 degrees until golden (10-15 minutes).
I hope you love these as much as I do – they’re almost as good as potato chips!
