Things You’ll Need

  • 2 cups self-rising flour

  • 6 tbs very cold unsalted butter, cubed

  • 1/2 cup + 3 tbs cold buttermilk, plus a bit extra for brushing

  • 1 large jalapeño, deseeded and chopped

  • 2 oz shredded sharp cheddar cheese, plus a bit extra for sprinkling

  • 6 strips of cooked bacon, chopped

  • large bowl

  • pastry blender

  • rolling pin

  • 2'' biscuit cutter

  • baking sheet

  • parchment paper

  • pastry brush

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Place flour and butter in a large bowl and using a pastry blender, cut the butter into the flour until it becomes the size of small peas.

Step 1


If you don't have a pastry blender, simply rub the cubed butter between your fingers until the butter breaks up into small pea-sized pieces.

Step 2

Add the shredded cheese, jalapeño and bacon, tossing a few times in the flour and butter mixture to coat.

Step 2

Step 3

Drizzle the buttermilk over the flour mixture, tossing the flour mixture with a fork as you pour. Once all the buttermilk has been added, gently knead the dough a few times until a shaggy dough forms.

Step 3

Step 4

Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface with all purpose flour. Roll or pat the dough into a 6" x 9'' rectangle. Cut rectangle into thirds and stack on top of one another.

Step 4

Step 5

Roll the stacked pieces into a 5" x 8" rectangle that is about 3/4" thick. Use a 2" biscuit cutter to cut out 8-9 biscuits, gathering and reshaping scraps as necessary.

Step 5


Dip the biscuit cutter into some flour in between cuts to reduce sticking.

Step 6

Place the biscuits on the prepared baking sheet, with 1" spacing between them. Brush the tops with a little buttermilk and a light sprinkle of cheese.

Step 6

Step 7

Bake the biscuits for 14-16 minutes, or until lightly golden. Remove from oven and serve immediately. Enjoy!
