Bacon Cheddar Biscuits

I can't imagine anything better than these biscuits, wow they were amazing!!! I saw this recipe in my Bon Appetite magazine and almost ate the page with the picture of these on them. I had a few friends over for dinner and made these at the request of one of my guests, such a great choice. They are the perfect texture; crisp on the outside, soft on the inside, and full of flavor. I had one for breakfast and lunch the next day...hello treadmill, here I come!

Bacon Cheddar Biscuits

3 3/4 Cups Unbleached Bread Flour
1 1/2 Tablespoons Baking Powder
1 1/2 Teaspoons Baking Soda
1 1/4 Teaspoons Salt
1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter, chilled and cut into cubes
1 Pound Thick Cut Bacon, cooked until crisp, drained and broken into small pieces
12 Ounces Sharp Cheddar Cheese, grated
1/2 Cup Fresh Chives, chopped
1 3/4-2 Cups Buttermilk

Preheat oven to 425 degrees and position rack just above center of oven.
Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl, add butter and cut in until texture of course meal. Add bacon, cheese, and chives, mix to incorporate into flour mixture. Add buttermilk to moisten, toss with a fork, add more buttermilk if needed (up to 2 cups total) to just bring dough together. Place a generous 1/2 cup batter for each biscuit onto baking sheet. Bake 18-20 minutes, or until golden brown and toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.

I'm not surprised you nearly ate the page, I'm drooling (not a pretty sight) just looking at your pic. You don't do mail order do you? Okay, I guess I'll just have to make my own. (sniff)
