Goat Cheese Biscuits

goat cheese biscuits

I'm certain one of the reasons I am not vegan is creamy goat cheese, and oh yes, paneer cheese too. I adore buttery biscuits with cheese in the mix. Surely an indulgence, once in a while comforting biscuits are in order. Darkness has engulfed the city I reside in, as usual. My oven shines despite it all.

Warm tangy goat cheese and yogurt biscuits make a perfect side to almost any meal or a great snack with a pat of butter

  • 2 cups unbleached white flour
  • 1/4 cup pastry or cake flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon coconut or other sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup soft unripened goat cheese
  • 3/4 cup whole fat yogurt
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat an oven to 425°F.

  • In a large bowl, combine the flours, baking powder, sugar and salt. Using a pastry cutter or a knife and fork, cut the butter and cheese into the dry mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the yogurt and cream until just combined.

  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, gently knead a few times, and shape into a rough rectangular shape. Fold it over twice onto itself and press down until the dough is about 1-inch thick. Fold over again in half and roll out until the dough is about 1-inch thick again.

  • Lightly flour a biscuit cutter that is 2 to 3 inches in diameter. Cut out rounds, transfer to the prepared baking sheet, and press the dough out again until all of it is cut out. Leave about 1 inch between each biscuit on the baking sheet.

  • Bake for 12 to 15 minutes until the tops are golden brown. Let cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes and serve hot.

Makes 10 - 12 biscuits
