    Servings and Ingredients

    Serves 10
    5 oz. Kerrygold Irish Cheddar cheese, finely shredded
    6 tbsp. Kerrygold Irish unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
    2 c. Hy-Vee all-purpose flour
    1 tbsp. Hy-Vee granulated sugar
    2 ½ tsp. Hy-Vee baking powder
    ½ tsp. Hy-Vee baking soda
    ½ tsp. Hy-Vee salt
    1 c. buttermilk, cold
    1 Hy-Vee large egg
    1 tbsp. water

    Things To Grab

    • Baking sheet
    • Parchment paper
    • Whisk
    • Large bowl
    • Pastry blender
    • Fork
    • 2-1/4-to-2-1/2-inch round cutter
    • Small bowl
    • Silicone pastry brush


    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside. Place shredded cheese and cut-up butter in freezer for 10 minutes.

    2. Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Add cheese; toss to combine. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture.

    3. Add buttermilk all at once. Using a fork, stir just until moistened. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead dough by folding and gently pressing until dough holds together.

    4. Roll dough on a lightly floured surface into a rough 10x8-inch rectangle. Cut rectangle crosswise into thirds. Stack the pieces to form three layers. Pat roll into 3/4-to-1-inch-thickness. Using a 2-1/4-to-2-1/2-inch round cutter, cut dough into biscuits.

    5. Place biscuits 1-inch apart on prepared baking sheet. Mix together egg and water in a small bowl; lightly brush biscuit tops with egg mixture. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden. Serve warm.
