jalapeno cheddar biscuits

it isn’t very often that i eat a biscuit, but once in awhile, i just have to try a new recipe. i have been searching for that perfect biscuit recipe for years. and, this one is getting pretty close to being a favorite.  each of these tender biscuits is cheesy and rich with a bit of heat that is quite pleasing.  the recipe comes from taste of home magazine, and these biscuits would go nicely with soup or salad.

to make the biscuits, combine 2 cups of all purpose flour, 3 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon thyme, 1/2 teaspoon paprika, with 5 tablespoons cold butter.  cut the butter in until the mixture resembles course crumbs.

stir in 3/4 cup cold 2 percent milk or half and half.  add one cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese and 3 tablespoons diced jalapeno slices or sliced green onions.

scoop out tablespoons of the biscuit mix and place 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet.  bake for 12-14 minutes at 425 degrees.

serve warm.
