Ingredients & Directions

-all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tb Baking powder
1/8 ts Freshly ground black pepper
1 ts Salt
1 c Grated white cheddar cheese
1 c Plus 1 teaspoon vegetable

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease a baking sheet. Combine 4
cups of the flour, baking powder, pepper, salt and cheese. Mix well. Add
the shortening and work it into the dry ingredients, using your hands,
until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Fold in half and half. The dough
will be sticky. Dust your work surface with 1 tablespoon of the flour. Turn
the dough onto the floured surface. Gently fold each side towards the
center. Pick up the dough and dust the work surface with the remaining
tablespoon flour. Return the dough to the floured surface and fold each
side towards the center again. Turn the dough over and lightly press it out
to 1-inch thickness. Cut the biscuits using a 2 1/4-inch round cookie
cutter. Place them on the baking sheet and bake until golden, 30 minutes.

Serve immediately.

Yields: 16 biscuits
