When you’re relaxing before you’re ready to have dinner, but don’t want to sip on your wine without a little something to take the edge off of your hunger, these decidedly Southern, half moon shaped cheese biscuits are just the thing! #ThisGirlLovesToEat
Southern Cheese Moons (Wine4Food)
- 1 cup extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
- ½ cup unsalted butter, softened (1 stick)
- 1 cup flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
- ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
- ¼ teaspoon mustard powder
- ¼ teaspoon sugar
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Cream together softened butter and finely shredded cheese, using the paddle on a stand mixer or a hand mixer.
Combine flour, salt, red pepper flakes, garlic, mustard, and sugar in a medium bowl. Whisk together well.
Slowly incorporate flour mixture and cheddar butter. Don’t over mix, just combine.
Transfer dough to parchment paper. Gently press into one ½-inch oval shape.
Using a 2-inch biscuit cutter, press cutter in dough. Then, slice in half.
For any remaining dough, shape into ½-inch ovals.
Place the cut half moons onto a parchment paper or Silpat-lined baking sheet. The cheese biscuits should be a minimum of 2 inches apart.
Bake for 20 minutes.
Transfer to cooling rack.
Enjoy these biscuits with a bold Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz/Syrah, Petite Syrah or Sangiovese. #GirlsGoneWine
