Cheddar and Jalapeno Drop Biscuits

Cheddar and Jalapeno Drop BiscuitsOur whole house cannot get enough biscuits. Miss F devours biscuits, I think it is one of her favorite things at Grandma's house: sausage and biscuits. The only acceptable addition to biscuits for C and Miss F is cheese. So I made half of this recipe with jalapeno and half without. Their loss. Turns out the jalapeno I used wasn't very potent at all and I could have used the whole pepper in half of the batch. My eyes didn't even sting at night when I was taking out my contacts. I wish there was a better way to judge a pepper's heat. Any tips?  Thanks to Sunny Side Up for the fantastic recipe.
Cheddar and Jalapeno Drop Biscuits

2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
½ teaspoon coarse salt
Pinch cayenne pepper
6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
1 jalapeno, finely diced
1 1/3 cups buttermilk, well shaken

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper (or preheat baking stone).
In a glass mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt, and cayenne pepper. Add the cold butter and use pastry blender or a fork and knife to cut the butter into the flour, until flour and butter make pea size clumps. Mix in the cheddar. Stir in the buttermilk and jalapenos and mix just until incorporated. Using an ice cream scoop (or 2 forks, making ¼ cup portions), drop dough 2-inches apart onto prepared baking sheets. Bake for 12-14 minutes, rotating baking sheets as needed.

Your biscuits look awesome! I'm so glad you like these!

I had to run out of the house while making these this week so I left Jesse in charge of scooping them out onto the baking sheet and he took the initiative to add an extra jalapeno ring to the top of each biscuit. It was great!

I really wish there was a trick to find out just how hot a jalapeno is! I guess it is just a surprise every time one uses them!
I made some yummy chicken, lime, orzo soup with jalapenos in. Man it was so hot I had to blow my nose three times during dinner! But is was so yummy.
These biscuits look amazing. We are biscuits lovers so I will try them soon.

To Cindy. Be I have discovered when jalapenos too hot add a sugar or Splenda.Not too much you'll have to taste, but the little bit of sweetness tames the heat and more bareable.
