episode five -- cheese biscuits by vincent price
There's nothing like freshly baked biscuits. And what's even better, is if they are made with real cheese. Today's recipe for golden cheese biscuits comes from the great Vincent Price, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
1/2 c. butter
1/2 lb cheddar cheese, grated
2 c. flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Next, cream the butter and cheese in a bowl, then gradually mix in the flour, salt and pepper. After you have done this, gather the dough into a ball and refrigerate it for about an hour. It should be covered with plastic, so it doesn't dry out in the fridge.
When the dough has been sufficiently chilled, remove it from the fridge and dispose of the plastic. Then, turn out the dough on a lightly floured board. You will then want to roll the dough out to 1/4-inch thickness and cut it with a small round biscuit cutter.
Place the biscuits on a lightly greased baking sheet and put them in oven. Bake at 350 degrees for seven or eight minutes, until golden. Enjoy!
The original recipe first appeared in Cooking with Vincent, a cookbook published in 1965.
