Cooking Notes

* Mona first found a similar recipe to inspire her in a local Junior League Cookbook years ago. But the exact cookbook has long since vanished, so we’ll credit her with all the home-cooked goodness as her own.

If you choose to use self-rising flour, be sure it is not expired. The date is printed on the bag. Same goes for your baking powder, check the bottom of the can before using. Old baking powder or self- rising flour will make your biscuits doughy little slabs.

The recipe is best with regular sour cream, but if your choose to use reduced fat, the texture will be softer.

Mona's Incredible Cheese Biscuits

2 cups (about 8 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese

1 cup butter, melted

1 cup sour cream*

2 cups self rising flour -OR- 2 cups all purpose flour, 3 teaspoons baking powder and 1 teaspoon salt*

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Mix all ingredients together and spoon into mini muffin pans, a tablespoon at a time. Bake for 10 minutes, or until biscuits are golden brown. Remove from oven and cool 5 minutes on wire racks. Can be prepared ahead and frozen for up to a month. Thaw on the counter and reheat wrapped in foil for 10 minutes or until warmed through, if desired. Also completely delicious eaten at room temperature.

From Alicia:
I marvel at the way great recipes are passed from generation to generation. Some of my favorite recipes are the ones my grandmother and my mom shared with me years ago. One of my absolute favorites is my mom’s Peanut Butter Cookies which is on for all to enjoy.
Today’s recipe is just that sort of recipe that comes from my girlfriend, Lane’s mom, Mona Ellis. I call them Mona’s Incredible Cheese Biscuits. At my church, where we all attend, they are known through every generation. If we’re hosting a brunch or morning snacks between services, you can hear the murmurs that Mona brought her biscuits before the last amen is spoken. Her platters are inevitably the first to empty, they really are that good.
So in celebration of moms, young and old, here is another mother to daughter recipe, Mona’s Incredible Cheese Biscuits. You’ll want to grab the scissors for this one, it will be one of those recipes you want to pass down from generation to generation.
