No.182 Cajun Cheddar Biscuits

These biscuit are great cross between an American southern biscuit and a classic British cheese Scone with a balanced cajun spice. These are defiantly not copy cat Red Lobster biscuits. These are balanced and rich whilst still being just as crave-able.

The secret to these are getting the right texture for these are making sure cheese and butter are really cold. If it’s the height of the summer best to freeze the butter and cheese for 20 minutes before grating.
