Ingredients

  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 11/2 cups cake flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 4 Tbs. cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 2 oz. grated sharp Cheddar cheese (1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 1 tsp. Tabasco red pepper sauce

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 400°F, and coat baking sheet with cooking spray.

2. Whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in large bowl. Stir in butter and cheese. Stir in buttermilk, and mix until dough just comes together. Scrape out onto well-floured work surface, and pat dough to ½-inch thickness. Cut out biscuits with 2 ½-inch diameter round cutter. Repeat with remaining scraps of dough until you have 8 biscuits, and transfer biscuits to prepared baking sheet.

3. Sprinkle red pepper sauce on tops of biscuits. Bake 12 to 15 minutes, or until puffed and golden. Serve hot.
