Recipe prepared by Chef Lynn Crawford of Ruby Watchco
2 cup all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp sugar
2 ½ tsp baking powder
1 tsp pepper
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
6 Tbsp (3/4 stick) chilled unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 ¼ cup grated extra-sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup cold buttermilk
1 egg, beaten
1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine first 6 ingredients in KitchenAid 13-Cup food processor using the dough blade and blend. Add butter and cut in, using on/off turns, until fine meal forms. Transfer to large bowl. Using the food processor, grate cheese using reversible shredding disc. Transfer cheese into large bowl and mix well. (Can be prepared 4 hours ahead. Cover and chill.)
2. Mix enough buttermilk into flour mixture to bind dough. Turn out onto floured surface and knead gently until combined, about 10 turns. Pat out dough to 3/4-inch thickness. Using 3-inch-diameter cookie cutter cut out biscuits. Gather scraps, pat out to 3/4-inch thickness and cut additional biscuits. Transfer biscuits to ungreased cookie sheet. Brush with egg wash. Bake until golden brown and firm to touch, about 18 minutes. Serve warm.
