Cheese Cornmeal Biscuits

3/4 c. flour

1/4 c. cornmeal

1 1/2 t. baking powder

1 t. sugar

pinch salt

4 T. cold butter, cut into dice

1/4 c. Mexican blend shredded cheese

1/2 c. milk


Combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, sugar and salt in a large bowl.  Place the butter in the bowl and combine using a pastry cutter, until mixture is crumbly and the butter is like small pebbles. Stir in the cheese and milk.  Drop onto a parchment lined baking sheet to make 6 biscuits of the same size.  (I used a 1/4 c. measure).  Bake in a preheated 450* oven for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
