• 1 cup Whole Wheat flour, pastry flour, or sprouted flour (If using sprouted flour, it will require more.)
  • 2 tsp. aluminum free Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1/4 tsp. sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup cold butter, cut up
  • 1 cup Raw Shredded Cheddar Cheese (we get raw cheddar cheese from the co-op)
  • 1/3 cup milk
These biscuits are light, flaky and full of cheesy goodness.  It is our family’s favorite “soup bread”. Someday, when I get my sourdough starter “restarted”, I shall post the sourdough version I came up with. It was delightful!

HEAT oven to 450ºF.
MIX first 5 ingredients in medium bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in Cheddar. Add milk; stir until mixture forms soft dough.
PLACE on lightly floured surface; knead 8 to 10 times or until smooth. Pat out dough into 6-inch square. Cut into 9 squares; place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheet.
BAKE 10 to 12 min. or until golden brown.
