Servings 4 people


  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg (cold)
  • 2 cups Bisquick (plus more if needed)
  • ¾ cup butter (cold, unsalted, cubed)
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • 1 egg (beaten)


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Whisk one-half cup of buttermilk together with one cold egg in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine two cups of Bisquick and three-quarters of a cup of cold, cubed butter. Using a pastry cutter, blend until the mixture becomes coarse and crumbly. Mix in one cup of cheddar cheese. Add the buttermilk mixture and mix everything together. Use your hands to knead a few times until the dough barely comes together.
  • Turn the dough onto a Bisquick floured surface and continue kneading a few times. Add more Bisquick if needed.
  • Roll out the dough to a ¾-inch thickness.
  • Using a biscuit cutter or a glass, cut into biscuits.
  • Place the biscuits onto the prepared baking sheet. Repeat until you've used up all the dough.
  • Brush the top of each biscuit with the beaten egg and bake in the preheated oven for about twenty minutes. Transfer to a rack to cool.
