Cheddar Onion Baking Powder Biscuits (adapted from How To Cook Everything)
2 cups all purpose flour
1 scant tsp. salt
7 tsp. baking powder (or 2 Tbsp + 1 tsp if you measure like me)
1 tsp. baking soda
4 Tbsp. cold butter
7/8 cup milk
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/2 an onion, chopped, and sauteed in a pan with cooking spray
Start off by chopping and sauteeing your onion, until it is brown:
In the bowl of a food processor, add the flour, salt, baking powder and soda, and the butter. Run until the butter is chopped into small pieces, then add the milk. Blend again, until the batter comes together. (Stop and scrape the sides if you have to.)
On a well-floured counter, turn out the dough and knead. Add some more flour, as it will be sticky! Then, by the handful, add the grated cheese. Knead to incorporate. After you finish the cheese, add the onions.
Knead them into the bread as well. If they try to escape, add some more flour. Break into 12 small pieces, and place them into the sections of a well-sprayed muffin tin.
