Abrams Cheese Biscuit Recipe


  1. 2 cups self-rising flour
  2. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  3. 3 tablespoons butter
  4. 1 cup milk, plus more for glazing
  5. 2 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded or cut into cubes.


Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour and salt. Add the butter and use your hands to mix it in until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the milk until a soft dough forms. Fold in the cheese until evenly distributed.

Use a tablespoon to drop dough onto a prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 1-inch apart. Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve warm with a brush of milk and more cheese, if desired.

Tips And Tricks

  • For a flakier biscuit, add an extra tablespoon of milk.
  • For extra-cheesy biscuits, add 1/2 cup more cheese.
  • If you don’t have self-rising flour, all-purpose flour should work fine. Just add 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder to the all-purpose flour before using.
  • Biscuits can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days.

These biscuits are best served right from the oven, but they’ll keep for a couple of days in an airtight container. Just heat them up and add a brush of milk before serving again.
