Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 9 tbsp cold butter cut in cubes (1 stick plus 1 tbsp)
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 3/4 cups milk cold
  • 1 egg for egg wash

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 F degrees.
  • In a large bowl add the flour, baking powder and salt and mix well.
  • Cut the cold butter into pieces, and add it to the bowl with flour.
  • Using a pastry cutter, or two knives cut into the butter until the butter forms into small peas.
  • Add the cheese and milk to the bowl and continue mixing until the dough comes together. Use your hands if necessary.
  • Turn the dough onto a floured surface and continue kneading a few times, do not over knead. Roll out the dough so that it's about half an inch thick.
  • Using a round cookie cutter, you can also use a glass if you don't have a round cookie cutter, start cutting the biscuits. My cookie cutter was about 3 inches in diameter, so the biscuits are a pretty big size.
  • Brush the biscuits with the egg wash and bake in the oven for about 20-25 minutes then let cool on a wire rack.
