These cheesy biscuits have a bit of a kick to them. I love each cheesy and spicy bite. They are perfect accompaniments to soups, stews, chilies, or any other comfort food that would benefit from the punch of cayenne pepper.
Spicy Cheese Drop Biscuitsmakes a baker’s dozen
1 ¾ cup flour
¼ cup cornmeal
1 tsp baking powder
¾ tsp salt
2 cups shredded queso quesadilla or Monterey Jack cheese
2 ounces cream cheese, softened
4 tablespoons butter, softened
6-8 tablespoons water, as needed
Preheat your oven to 450. Mix together the dry ingredients including the shredded cheese. Cut in the butter and cream cheese until the dough resembles little balls. Add the water until a soft (but not too sticky) dough forms. Using about 3-4 tablespoons of dough at a time, make little balls and press them flat. Arrange on a baking dish and bake for 15 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes before serving.
