Author's Notes

These particular biscuits spread out some and are wonderful sliced as a sandwich. I used a 3-inch cutter, however for slightly smaller biscuits that would be good for soups or stews a 2 1/2-inch cutter is probably preferred.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) and line a large baking tray with parchment.
Step 2
In a large bowl whisk together All-Purpose Flour (1 1/2 cups) , Cornmeal (1/2 cup) , Granulated Sugar (2 Tbsp) , Baking Powder (1 Tbsp) , Kosher Salt (3/4 tsp) and Baking Soda (1/2 tsp) .
Step 3
Add Unsalted Butter (1/2 cup) and using a pastry cutter, cut butter into dry ingredients until pea-sized and evenly distributed.
Step 4
In a separate bowl, whisk together Buttermilk (3/4 cup) and one Egg (1) . Add mixture to dry ingredients and stir until just starting to come together.
Step 5
Add Cheddar Cheese (1 1/2 cups) and Jalapeño Pepper Slices (1/4 cup) and continue to mix until just incorporated, being careful not to overmix. It will be a bit of a scraggly mess.
Step 6
Flour your work surface and dump out the dough. Knead dough a few times to bring everything together. Flatten dough into a 3/4 to 1 inch disk. Using a 3-inch round cutter, cut out biscuits.
Step 7
Reform remaining dough and cut out biscuits. Place biscuits on a parchment lined baking tray.
Step 8
Whisk together Egg (1) and Milk (1 Tbsp) . Brush biscuit top and sides generously with the mixture.
Step 9
Bake for about 18 minutes, until golden and puffed.
Step 10
Remove from oven and allow to rest on the tray for 3 to 5 minutes before moving to a cooling rack. Serve slightly warm. Enjoy!
