3 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons (1 stick) cold unsalted butter
1 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese
1/3 cup chopped fresh chives
6 bacon slices, finely chopped and fried until crisp
1 1/2 cups milk
1) Position a rack in the lower third of an oven and preheat to 400 degrees F. Lightly spray a biscuit pan with nonstick cooking spray.
2) In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Using a pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in the butter until it resembles coarse meal. Add the cheese, chives and bacon; using a fork, stir until evenly distributed. Add the milk; using a rubber spatula, stir until just combined. Divide the dough among the wells of the prepared pan.
3)Bake until the biscuits are golden and a toothpick inserted into the center of a biscuit comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let cool for 15 minutes. Invert the pan onto the rack and lift off the pan. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
Makes about 7 bisuits
