    Servings and Ingredients

    Serves 8
    3 c. Hy-Vee all-purpose flour
    1 tbsp. Hy-Vee baking powder
    1 tbsp. Hy-Vee granulated sugar
    ¾ tsp. cream of tartar
    ½ tsp. kosher salt
    ½ c. Hy-Vee unsalted butter, chilled and cut into chunks
    ⅓ c. hatch peppers, seeded and finely chopped
    ½ c. Hy-Vee finely shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
    1 ¼ c. buttermilk

    Things To Grab

    • 10-inch cast iron skillet
    • Hy-Vee nonstick cooking spray
    • Large bowl
    • Pastry blender
    • Rolling pin
    • 3-inch circular biscuit cutter


    1. Spray a 10-inch cast iron skillet with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.

    2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Stir together flour, baking powder, sugar, cream of tartar, and salt in a large bowl. Using a pastry blender, cut in chilled butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Mix in hatch peppers and Cheddar cheese. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add buttermilk all at once to flour mixture. Using a fork, stir just until mixture is moistened.

    3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead dough by folding and gently pressing it just until dough holds together. Pat or lightly roll dough to a 1 to 1-1/2-inch-thickness. Using a 3-inch circular cookie cutter, cut biscuits into 8 portions. 

    4. Place dough portions onto prepared cast iron skillet. Bake for 20 to 23 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to a cooling rack and cool slightly. Serve warm.
