Calories 384kcal



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter, grated on box grater and frozen
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Jalapeno Butter

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 medium jalapeno, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder



  • Preheat oven to 400F. Lightly grease an 8x8 baking pan and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to cut butter into crumbly. Add buttermilk to flour mixture and stir until a shaggy dough forms.
  • Turn dough onto a floured surface and very gently knead several times until dough just comes together. Pat dough out to 1-in thickness and use a 2-in biscuit cutter to cut biscuits out (you should have 6)
  • Arrange biscuits in prepared pan. Stuff cheddar cheese between biscuits, sprinkling any remaining on top of biscuits. Chill biscuits in fridge 10 minutes.
  • Bake biscuits at 400F 30-35 minutes until biscuits are golden brown. Set aside for a moment while you prepare the jalapeno butter.

Jalapeno Butter

  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Add jalapeno and sauté several minutes until jalapeno is softened. Remove from heat and stir in garlic powder.
  • Brush jalapeno butter over warm biscuits. Pull biscuits apart to serve warm. Enjoy!
