Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour

  • 4 teaspoons baking powder

  • 3 tablespoons white sugar

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon cream of tartar

  • ½ cup butter or margarine

  • ¾ cup milk

  • ½ cup shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and cream of tartar. Cut in butter using a pastry cutter or a fork until it is the size of peas. Make a well in the center of the mixture and measure the milk, cheese and thyme into the bowl. Gently mix until a soft dough forms.

  3. Roll or pat out on a floured surface to 3/4 inch thick. Cut into circles and place on a baking sheet.

  4. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the bottoms of the biscuits are golden brown.
