Ingredients
  1. 2 cups flour
  2. 1 teaspoon salt
  3. 4 teaspoons baking powder
  4. ½ teaspoon cream of tartar
  5. 1 tablespoon sugar
  6. 1 stick butter
  7. 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons grated cheddar cheese
  8. 2 tablespoons thyme or other fresh herb
  9. 2/3 cup buttermilk
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking powder, cream of tartar, and sugar. Using your fingers or a pastry cutter, cut the butter into the flour mixture. Combine until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
  4. Stir in 1 cup of the grated cheese and the thyme. Using a fork, add the buttermilk and combine until just incorporated. The mixture will be crumbly.
  5. Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Use your hands to lightly press together until the dough is 3/4-inch thick.
  6. Using a 2-inch round biscuit or cookie cutter, cut out rounds and transfer them to the prepared baking sheet.
  7. Rework the remaining scraps of dough to cut out more rounds until all the dough has been used.
  8. Sprinkle each biscuit with the remaining cheese. Bake until golden brown, 10-12 minutes.
