Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Heat oven to 450°F.
  • Mix first 4 ingredients in large bowl until well blended. Cut in shortening with pastry blender or 2 knives or until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Mix sour cream and milk. Add to flour mixture; stir with fork just until mixture forms soft dough. (Do not overmix.)
  • Knead on lightly floured baking sheet 10 times or until smooth. Pat or roll out dough to 12x8-inch rectangle. Cut into 12 (4x2-inch) rectangles with pizza wheel. Place 1 cheese cube about 3/4 inch from edge of 1 short side of each rectangle. Brush edges of dough with water; fold dough over cheese to form 2-inch square. Firmly pinch edges of dough together to seal. Arrange evenly on baking sheet.
  • Bake 12 to 15 min. or until lightly browned.

How to Reheat Biscuits

Wrap biscuits in foil. Bake in 350ºF oven 10 to 15 min. or until heated through.

Special Extra

For a flavor twist, add 1/4 tsp. ground red pepper (cayenne), and/or 2 chopped green onions to the flour mixture before adding the sour cream mixture.

Food Facts

Humidity and measuring accuracy can affect the quality of biscuits. If the dough is dry, add up to 1 additional Tbsp. milk to dough before kneading as directed. Also, flour the work surface with the least amount of flour possible to prevent the dough from sticking to the surface.

    These are really tasty and pretty easy. You can't go wrong with cornbread and cheese! Make sure to flour your hands when working with the dough. Also, when closing the pockets, I found that it was easier to pick them up and reform into balls than just pinch the sides. The pinched sides leaked more.
