Buttermilk Cheddar Biscuits

Ingredients:
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 cup cold butter or margarine
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
3/4 cup buttermilk

Directions:
In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cayenne. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the cheese and toss. Stir in buttermilk until just moistened. Place on a lightly floured surface and knead about 10 times. Pat or roll until the dough is about 1” thick, and cut with a floured 2-1/2” biscuit cutter. Place 1” apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 425° F for about 15 minutes, or until golden-brown. Serve warm.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
