Yield: about 14 biscuits
  • 1 package (2¼ tsp, ¼oz, 7g) RED STAR Platinum Superior Baking Yeast
  • ⅓ cup warm water (110-115°F)
  • Pinch of sugar
  • 2½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp Old Bay Seasoning
  • ½ cup butter, cold & cut into cubes
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1½ cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup chopped Fresh Parsley
  • 3 Tbsp melted butter
  • ¼ tsp Old Bay Seasoning
  • Flaked sea salt
  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Combine yeast and pinch of sugar to warm water. Stir to dissolve; set aside for 5 minutes or until foamy.
  3. In large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and Old Bay Seasoning. Using a pastry blender, cut cold butter into dry ingredients until butter is the size of peas.
  4. Stir in buttermilk and yeast mixture. Stir in cheddar cheese and parsley. Do not over mix. Using hands mix dough until it just comes together into a large ball.
  5. Generously spray baking sheet with nonstick spray. Place a second baking sheet underneath to prevent bottoms from getting too brown.
  6. Measure ¼ cup of dough, form into 3-4 mini patty shapes that are flat on top. Transfer to baking sheet. Space each biscuit 2 inches apart. Repeat with remaining dough.
  7. Mix melted butter and ¼ teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning.
  8. Bake biscuits 10 minutes. Brush with melted butter mixture and sprinkle with flaked salt. Bake 2 additional minutes, or until light golden brown. Serve warm.
