  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter cut into small cubes
  • 3/4 cup sour milk or buttermilk
  • 1 cup orange cheddar cheese finely grated
  • 2 tbsp melted butter for brushing

All Dressed Seasoning

  • 1 tsp poppy seeds
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Mix all dressed seasoning in a small bowl and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add cold cut butter. Using a pastry cutter, combine until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Add in finely grated cheddar and toss (hands are great for this) until well incorporated.
  • Pour in buttermilk (or sour milk, which is what I used) and stir until a dough begins to form. Use your hands to bring it all together, kneading it for 30 seconds or so.
  • Transfer to a parchment paper lined baking sheet and form into an inch and half thick square. Cut into 12 equally divided squares.
  • Toss each square into seasoning to lightly coat. Give em a quick roll. Transfer back to the baking sheet, placing the seasoned biscuits roughly two inches apart.
  • Lightly brush the tops and sides with melted butter.
  • Pop into a 450 degree oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, until golden and fluffy. Enjoy!


  • For 3/4 cup sour milk, combine 3/4 cup milk with 2 1/2 tsp white vinegar. Let sit for 5 minutes. Et voila.
