Pimento Cheese Biscuits


Pimento Cheese is like it's own food group in the south. Everyone has their own unique take on it and it's hard to pick a favorite.  When I go back home to South Carolina I usually have 3 or 4 different pimento cheeses while there because...well why not?  When I saw these biscuits I just had to try them out and they did not disappoint. Recipe from Southern Bite.

2 1/2 cups self-rising flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 cup buttermilk
3oz jar diced pimentos
1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Heat oven to 475. In a bowl combine the self-rising flour, salt and sugar.  Cut the cold butter into cubes and cut it into the flour mixture with a pastry cutter or fork until it becomes a crumbly mixture. Stir in the buttermilk. Drain the pimentos well then add to the biscuit mixture along with the cheese. Fold the biscuit mixture several times to combine. Flour a smooth service and pat the dough into a circle that is 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch thick. Using a small biscuit cutter, press out the biscuits and place in a buttered dish. Bake for 13 to 16 minute or until the biscuits are just starting to brown.
