Cheddar Fans Recipe
5 oz cheddar, sharp, grated
2 cup unbleached flour, sifted
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter or shortening
1/2 cup milk
1 butter, softened
1 butter, melted
Grease the bottoms of 12 muffin pan cups. Grate the cheese into a
bowl, if not already grated and set aside. Sift the flour, baking
powder and salt into a bowl. Cut in the shortening with a pastry
blender or two knives, until the mixture resembles coarse corn meal.
Make a well in the center of the mixture and add the milk all at once.
Stir with a fork until the dough forms a ball. Gently form the dough
into a ball and put on a lightly floured surface. Knead it lightly
with the fingertips 10 or 15 times. Roll the dough into a 12 X
10-inch rectangle about 1/4-inch thick. Cut into 5 strips and spread
with the softened butter. Sprinkle four strips with the grated
cheddar cheese and stack the four on top of one another and top with
the fifth strip. Cut into 12 equal pieces and place on end in the
muffin cups. Brush the tops of the rolls with the melted butter. Bake
at 450 degrees F. for 10 to 15 minutes or until the biscuits are
golden brown. Serve hot with butter. Makes 1 dozen Cheddar Fans.
