Cheese and Spinach biscuits
2 to 2 1/4 C. all-purpose flour, plus more for work surface
2 1/4 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1 C. Spinach, fresh & chopped
1/2 tsp. salt1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. thyme
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. ground pepper
6 tbsp. cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
3/4 C. buttermilk3/4 C. shredded cheddar cheese
Directions:1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk together cups of flour, baking powder, baking soda, spinach, sugar, & remaining seasoning. Cut in butter with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs, with some pea-size lumps. Mix in buttermilk and cheese until combined. With a floured hand, knead dough against side of bowl until it holds together. If it is sticky, knead in up to 1/4 cup more flour.
2.After kneading biscuit dough, turn it out onto a lightly floured work surface. Pat the dough to 1 inch thick. With a floured 2-inch biscuit cutter, cut out rounds as close together as possible. Place on a baking sheet. Gather scraps; pat again, and cut out more rounds.
3.Brush the tops with 1/2 tablespoon melted unsalted butter. Bake until biscuits are golden brown. Serve warm with your favorite jam or preserve with a side of tea! Enjoy!
