Cilantro Jack Biscuits

25 Feb

photo_1[1]With great love, I woke up at (ugh) 7am on Sunday morning, ran downstairs and made my honeybear some tasty breakfast biscuits. I can never, ever sleep late on a Sunday morning, and even though we went to bed super late (1am) after cleaning up from our excellently fun dinner party, I still woke up with my awful body clock ringing.

But the biscuits were tasty with butter on top.


  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 stick butter (cold!)
  • 4 tbsp fat free greek yogurt
  • 1/4 c almond milk (or whatever milk you’ve got)
  • 1/2 c monterey jack (or whatever cheese), grated
  • 1/2 c fresh cilantro, just the leaves


  • Preheat to 350.
  • Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Cut butter, and using a fork mix the cold butter in (don’t use your hands) until pea-sized flour-butter bits remain.
  • Stir in yogurt and milk. Finally stir in cheese and cilantro. Don’t over mix.
  • Flour a surface and roll the dough out onto the surface. Use a glass/cup or other shape to cut your biscuits. Mine was rolled to about 1/2 inch thickness and made 8 biscuits, though these were on the thin side. If you want them thicker, roll thicker!
  • Bake for ~15-20 min, or until golden on the outside. Enjoy!
