While Paula Dean was on the rise as a Food Network star, she made an appearance on Good Morning America in 1998. Promoting her then new cookbook, “The Lady & Sons Savannah Country Cookbook” (which promotes her as Owner & Proprietor rather than Food Network star) she brought these Cheese Biscuits. Her famous tender biscuits with cheddar cheese put every other cheese biscuit to shame, including those overrated freebies at the Red Lobster.

Ingredients
2 Cups self-rising flour
1 Teaspoon baking powder
1 Teaspoon sugar
1/3 Cup Crisco shortening
3/4 Cup grated Cheddar cheese
1 Cup buttermilk

Directions
Preheat oven to 350°F.

Mix flour, baking powder, and sugar together using a fork; cut in shortening until it resembles cornmeal. Add cheese. Stir in buttermilk all at one time just until blended. Do not overstir.

Drop by tablespoonfuls (An ice cream scoop can be used to give biscuits a nicer shape) onto a well-greased baking sheet.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes.

Yields 8 large biscuits
