Blue Cheese Biscuits


1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for work surface
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon table salt
1/4 cup blue cheese, crumbled (see Note)
1/4 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
2/3 cup milk


Preheat oven to 425°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or grease with butter.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Transfer to your freezer for 10 minutes to let everything get cold.

Take the bowl from the freezer and use a pastry cutter to work the cheese and butter into the flour mixture until it looks like coarse sand with pea-sized lumps. Slowly add milk, stirring with a fork as you go.

Turn dough out onto a floured surface, knead three times, and gently press out to a ½-inch thickness. Use a floured biscuit cutter or 2-inch glass rim to cut the biscuits out, gathering and rerolling the dough as needed. Arrange biscuits on the baking sheet and bake until golden brown and fragrant, 12 to 15 minutes.
