 Categories: Breads Cheese Quickbreads
   Servings:  4
 
       5 oz Cheddar; Sharp, Grated 
       2 c  Unbleached Flour; Sifted 
       1 tb Baking Powder 
       1 ts Salt 
     1/2 c  Butter Or Shortening 
     1/2 c  Milk 
       1 x  Butter; Softened 
       1 x  Butter; Melted 
 
   Grease the bottoms of 12 muffin pan cups.  Grate the cheese into a bowl,
   if not already grated and set aside.  Sift the flour, baking powder and
   salt into a bowl.  Cut in the shortening with a pastry blender or two
   knives, until the mixture resembles coarse corn meal.  Make a well in the
   center of the mixture and add the milk all at once.  Stir with a fork
   until the dough forms a ball.  Gently form the dough into a ball and put
   on a lightly floured surface.  Knead it lightly with the fingertips 10 or
   15 times.  Roll the dough into a 12 X 10-inch rectangle about 1/4-inch
   thick.  Cut into 5 strips and spread with the softened butter.  Sprinkle
   four strips with the grated cheddar cheese and stack the four on top of
   one another and top with the fifth strip.  Cut into 12 equal pieces and
   place on end in the muffin cups.  Brush the tops of the rolls with the
   melted butter.  Bake at 450 degrees F. for 10 to 15 minutes or until the
   biscuits are golden brown.  Serve hot with butter.
   
   Makes 1 dozen Cheddar Fans.
