Cheese Biscuits ~ by Sarah

Last summer, our neighbor girl brought these biscuits over to show off her cooking.  I ate them all and promptly sent her back across the street for the recipe.  They're easy and delicious!

2 c. flour
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
1/4 cup chilled shortening (I use white Crisco)
1/2 c. shredded sharp cheddar cheese
3/4 c. milk
1/4 c. butter, melted

Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl.  Cut in the shortening and cheddar cheese until crumbly.  Add the milk and stir to incorporate.  Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto an ungreased baking sheet.  Bake at 450 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.  Brush with melted butter and serve immediately.

Makes 6 to 8 large biscuits or 12 small biscuits.
