Servings: Makes 24 biscuits

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Prep Time: 15 minutes


These biscuits are best served still warm from the oven, but you can store them in an airtight container at room temperature up to two days; warm them in a 300-degree oven for 5 minutes before serving. To make these biscuits ahead, simply follow the recipe through Step 4, then freeze dough on a parchment-lined baking sheet until firm. Transfer to a freezer bag and freeze for up to one month. Bake from frozen, adding 5 to 8 minutes to baking time.
2 1/2 cups (12.5 oz.) all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
4 oz. extra-sharp cheddar cheese, grated coarse (1 cup)
1/4 cup jarred diced pimientos, drained and patted dry
1 1/4 cups buttermilk, chilled
3 Tbsp. mayonnaise
5 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled


1. Place racks in upper-middle and lower-middle of oven and heat to 425 degrees.
2. Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, garlic powder, sugar, and cayenne in a large bowl until combined. Add cheese and pimientos and toss to coat.
3. Whisk buttermilk and mayonnaise in a medium bowl. Add melted butter and gently stir until clumps form. Pour liquid ingredients into dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
4. Using a greased spoon or scoop, divide dough into 24 portions (about 3 tablespoons each) on two parchment-lined baking sheets, spaced about 2" apart.
5. Bake until biscuits are lightly browned underneath and set on top, rotating sheets halfway through, 12 to 14 minutes. Transfer biscuits to a wire rack and let cool 5 minutes before serving.
