1/4 teaspoon garlic salt

1/2 cup cold Land O Lakes® Butter cut into chunks

6 ounces (1 1/2 cups) shredded pepper jack cheese

3/4 cup buttermilk  

Chopped ripe olives or red bell pepper, cut into small pieces

 

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

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 450°F.

  2. STEP 2

    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.

  4. STEP 4

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

Tip #1

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

Tip #2

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