While cleaning out the cutlery drawer, mom found an old recipe given to her by a colleague for cheese biscuits.  This morning, I woke to warm cheesy smells wafting up from the kitchen.

By the time I ventured down, they were still slightly warm. Soft, cheesy with bits of bacon and spring onion, they were flavourful and moist.  Lovely with cut of coffee or tea!

2 C all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt *
1/3 C butter
1 1/2 C shredded cheddar cheese
1 greenonion, chopped
1 1/4 C milk

*if adding bacon or ham, cut down the salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
1. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Cut butter into mixture with fingers or two knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. 
2. Stir in cheese and green onion (and bacon/ham if desired).
3. Stir in milk to make a soft, sticky dough.  Divide dough into 12 portions.  Drop onto greased baking sheet. 
4. Bake for 18 - 20 minutes or until edges are golden.  Serve warm or cool.
