“Originally from the Frank's Red Hot Sauce website - this recipe is a fantastic way to spice up regular old biscuits!”
16 biscuits

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F Place flour, cheese, baking powder, sugar and baking soda in a blender or food processor. Cover and process for 30 seconds. Add the butter and shortening and process, pulsing on and off, until fine crumbs form. Transfer to a large bowl.
  2. Add 1 cup of buttermilk and the hot sauce all at once. Stir together just until the mixture starts to form a ball. (Dough will be dry. Do not over mix.)
  3. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured board. With the palms of your hands, gently knead the dough 8 times. Using a floured rolling pin or your hands, roll or pat the dough to 3/4-inch thickness. Using a 2 1/2 inch round biscuit cutter, cut out 16 biscuits, re-rolling dough as necessary.
  4. Place the biscuits 2 inches apart on a large foil-lined baking sheet. Brush the tops with the remaining 2 tablespoons of buttermilk; sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
