Making the Sun-Dried Tomato Biscuits
(scroll down to the bottom of the post for the full recipe)
Ingredients You Will Need
- All-purpose flour
- Baking powder
- Unsalted butter
- Feta cheese
- Sun-dried tomatoes
Equipment You Will Need
- Cast iron skillet
- Box grater
- Pastry cutter
- Mixing bowl
If you don’t have a cast iron skillet, you can easily bake these biscuits in an 8×8 square baking pan instead.
A pastry cutter is optional, but it’s quite helpful for working the cold butter into the flour.
Tips for Perfect Biscuits
- Use box grater to shred cold butter – we find that shredded butter is much easier to incorporate into the flour rather than dicing it.
- Measure flour correctly – we use the spoon-and-level technique for measuring flour as this will prevent over-measuring. Use a spoon to scoop flour into the measuring cup, then level it off with the back of a knife.
- Gently fold biscuit dough– be careful not to overmix the dough as this will lead to a tough, gummy texture.
- Shape biscuit dough on a floured surface – keep a little extra flour nearby so you can easily shape the biscuit dough without it sticking to the counter.
- Chill biscuits before baking – you will want to keep your biscuits chilled right up until you’re ready to bake. Don’t be tempted to skip the chilling step, it may seem like overkill but it’s worth it in the end! Cold fats = flaky biscuit.
- Bake biscuits at high temperature – 400F bakes the biscuits fast and perfectly browns them on the outside.
Try these ideas for a different twist on these biscuits!
- Add fresh herbs – a little minced fresh rosemary, thyme, or parsley would add a great herby pop to these biscuits!
- Swap out the cheese – try goat cheese, grated Parmesan, mozzarella, or asiago in place of the feta.
Storing and Freezing Biscuits
Store baked biscuits sealed at room temperature up to 4 days or freeze up to 2 months.
We recommend reheating biscuits in microwave or oven before serving for best results.
For a make-ahead option, you can shape the biscuits and store in refrigerator up to 4 days prior to baking. When ready to bake, remove from fridge and immediately bake per recipe instructions.
Just LOOK at that incredibly flaky texture! Every bite of these biscuits is chock-full of tangy sun-dried tomato and rich feta cheese. It’s just pure biscuit bliss.
Serve these biscuits alongside any meal and we guarantee you’ll have a winner on your hands!
