Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 cup cold Land O Lakes® Butter, cut into chunks
6 ounces (1 1/2 cups) Land O Lakes® Jalapeño Jack Cheese, shredded
3/4 cup buttermilk*
Chopped ripe olives or red bell pepper, cut into small pieces

Directions

Heat oven to 450°F.

Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and garlic salt in bowl; cut in butter with fork or pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add cheese; toss to coat with flour mixture. Stir in buttermilk just until moistened.

Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface; knead 10 times or until smooth. Roll out dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with 3- to 4-inch bat-shaped cookie cutters.

Place 1 inch apart onto large ungreased baking sheet. Press olives or red pepper pieces into dough for eyes.

Bake 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm with butter.


*Substitute 1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice plus enough milk to equal 3/4 cup. Let stand 5 minutes.

 

Variation:
Red Pepper Biscuits:  Add 1/4 cup finely chopped roasted red pepper, patted dry, to dough with the cheese.

Recipe Tip

Use your favorite Halloween cookie cutter, such as broomstick or ghost, or use a round biscuit cutter to cut biscuits.
