Cheesy Biscuit Sticks

For lack of a better name, I am calling these little guys Biscuit Sticks! :) They are made with my Baking Mix and are just the right size for a little snack. Jerry and his mom have been gobbling them up almost as fast as I make them! When I made the first batch, I grated the cheese with the large holes on the grater but because I used my Queso Blanco goat cheese, which doesn't melt very well, the cheese was kinda chewy in the biscuits. With this batch, I used the smaller holes on the grater and I was much more pleased with the outcome. :) Grated cheddar or parmesan cheese would also be yummy!

2 cups Baking Mix
1/4 cup cold butter cut into small pieces
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3/4 cup grated cheese
3/4 cup buttermilk




Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place Baking Mix, butter and cayenne pepper in a bowl and cut in butter.

 By the way, can anyone tell me why my pictures sometimes end up rotated when I upload them?!?








Stir in grated cheese. Make a well in the center and add the buttermilk all at once.















Stir together until a soft dough forms. Turn dough out onto a well floured surface. Dust the top with additional flour. Knead gently 8-10 times.










Pat dough into a rectangle about 12 x 8 inches and about 1/2-inch thick. Cut into sticks.












Place on an ungreased baking sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.


Sample while still warm....repeat as necessary! :)

Now this I gotta try! I'm always looking for ways to feed my ravenous wolves, er, kids, and once in a while a biscuit like this would hit the spot! Thanks for being my newest follower! You're funny! But not 'creepy!' LOL!!!

P.S. Since you mention Queso, you must know on what to use it! I have some but don't have any idea what to use it with, besides your awesome biscuits that is! Thoughts?

I used Queso it in her green chili casserole (instead of goat cheese) worked great! Cute sticks!

TASO,

Queso would also be good on tacos, in enchiladas, even on a big salad! It is a nice mild cheese that goes with just about anything. Check out the "Sunday Brunch at the Lazy J Bar C" post for the Chile Relleno casserole recipe. :)

Nancy,

Thanks for the kind words! :)

Thanks for the reply! Those suggestions sound so natural! Can't wait to try now. And the Chile Relleno casserole sounds divine! WILL try that too! Thank you so much! I'm now off to make your baking mix... Thanks for all your kitchen inspiration, I sure could use it anytime where the kitchen is concerned, especially since it's the hub of all life for the family!

Might be good with some diced hot chilis in too!

Nancy,

I bet that would be good! :)
