3 cups flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 cup butter, cubed and cold
1 egg
1 cup milk
1 cup cheddar cheese

Ingredients – Topping
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dry oregano
1/2 teaspoon dry parsley
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter, melted

Place the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder into a food processor. Pulse together to combine. Drop in the ice-cold butter cubes into the processor, pulsing as you add them. Mix together the milk and egg and drizzle into the flour mixture. The mixture should be crumbly and resemble peas. Do not overmix.

Remove the dough from the processor and place into a bowl. Add the cheddar, and using your hands, incorporate into the dough. Place the dough ball onto a lightly floured surface and press down to create a flat oval. Dust the surface with flour and, using a rolling pin, roll out to a 1/2” thickness. Cut with a round cookie cutter and place onto a parchment or silicone lined tray.

Preheat the oven to 450°F. While the oven is preheating, prepare the topping. Mix together the 1/4 cup melted butter, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, oregano, parsley and salt until well combined. Brush on top of the biscuit rounds. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Once they are removed from the oven, brush the tops once again with the remaining melted butter. Place on a wire rack to cool for 5 minutes.

Makes 24 biscuits.
