Ingredients
  • 7 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • 2 cups dry powdered milk
  • 1 pound cream cheese, cold
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted, plus chilled butter for serving
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons table salt
  • 3 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 3 cups shredded Cheddar
  • Jam, for serving
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Add the flour, powdered milk, cream cheese, butter, sugar, baking powder and salt to a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment and mix on low speed until the flour resembles coarse cornmeal. With the mixer running, slowly add the buttermilk and mix until a dough forms. Increase the speed to medium and mix until the dough starts to stick to the sides of the mixing bowl. Stop the mixer.

  • Add the Cheddar and mix on low speed until incorporated, about 10 seconds. (You don't want to break up the cheese.)

  • Place the dough on a floured rolling surface and knead it 25 times, until the dough is soft and doesn't stick to your hands or the board. Roll out the dough to 3/4-inch thickness and cut out 36 biscuits with a biscuit cutter, transferring the biscuits to the prepared baking sheets.

  • Bake the biscuits, rotating the baking sheets halfway through, until golden brown, about 30 minutes. Serve with butter and jam.
