Ingredients

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 cups self rising flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons dry ranch dressing mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 sticks very cold butter grated
  • 1 cup bacon cooked and diced
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese grated
  • 2 1/4 cups buttermilk

Instructions

  • In a large mixing bowl, add the flours, baking powder, ranch dressing mix, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine.
  • Using a pastry blender or fork, work the butter into the flour mixture until it is evenly distributed.
  • Add the bacon and cheese. Stir.
  • Pour in half of the buttermilk and stir.  Add the remaining buttermilk and stir gently just until it is combined. 
  • On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough 2-3 times. Press out with your hands until it is about one inch thick. Fold the dough in half and press again. Repeat this step two more times.
  • With a 3-inch cookie cutter, cut out the biscuits and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Brush the tops of the biscuits with a beaten egg.
  • Bake in a preheated 375-degree oven for 30-35 minutes until lightly browned.
