For a different take on the traditional dinner roll this Thanksgiving, try chef Art Smith's goat cheese biscuits; the recipe is a basic buttermilk drop biscuit that incorporates tangy and creamy goat cheese.
The recipe's incredibly easy, though I did make one change: The recipe called for coating the preheated cast iron pan in butter, but due to the heat, the butter nearly instantly turned a very dark brown, and smoked throughout my first batch. Since I didn't want my smoke alarm to go off for my second batch, I opted to use a peanut oil to ensure they didn't stick, but also didn't smoke. Ready to try a new take on a biscuit? Just keep reading for the recipe.
2 cups King Arthur self-rising flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons (2 ounces) cold unsalted butter
4 tablespoons (2 ounces) goat cheese
1 cup (8 ounces) buttermilk
Extra butter or high heat oil like peanut oil to grease pan and top biscuits
- Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F. Place one 10-inch cast-iron pan or griddle into the oven while it is preheating. Place flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder into a medium-sized bowl.
- Cut in the butter and goat cheese. Make a well in the middle of the ingredients and pour in the milk. Stir until the mix is moistened, adding an extra tablespoon of milk if needed.
- Remove the hot skillet from the oven and place a tablespoon of peanut oil into it. Drop 1/4 cupfuls of batter into the pan (use a muffin scoop to drop the batter if you have one). Brush the tops of the biscuits with melted butter. Bake from 14-16 minutes until browned on the top and bottom. Remove from the oven and enjoy warm!
Makes a dozen.
