How true this is. While visiting Texas for a friend's wedding, I tasted some spicy cheese biscuits at a restaurant. When I got home, after a brief perusal of Allrecipes.com, I pulled on my apron and headed to the kitchen. The result was this tangy cheese biscuit recipe:
Makes: about 55 biscuits
You will need:
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup chopped chives (dried work just as well)
- 1/2 tsp. salt (optional)
- 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
- 1 tsp. paprika
- 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
- 2 cups rice crispy cereal
Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Unwrap the logs and cut into slices about 1/2 to 1 inch thick. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until the edges are crispy and very slightly brown.
Not spicy enough? adjust the amount of spice you put in accordingly. (As I found out, Texans love their food on the spicy side :-))
