These spicy biscuits are sure to become a family favourite. To make the flakiest biscuits, use very cold butter, working quickly when combining with flour. Simply omit the chilies if your family prefers a milder flavour. Try the biscuits with your favourite chili or corn chowder.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

In large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, cayenne pepper and hot pepper flakes. With pastry blender, 2 knives or fingertips, cut in butter until mixture is in crumbs. Stir in cheese.

Whisk egg with buttermilk; pour over dry ingredients and stir to form sticky mass. Turn out onto floured surface; knead lightly 4 or 5 times. Roll into 3/4-inch (2 cm) thickness. With 2-1/4-inch (5.5 cm) round cutter, cut out shapes, rerolling scraps. Place on parchment paper–lined baking sheet.
