Curt's Delectable Herb Cheddar Biscuit Recipe

I am a bread lover kind of guy. We love our cheddar biscuits, these are one we make at least once a month with our meal. Very addicting if I say so myself..  hope you like the recipe.
I could eat just bread sometimes, the cheese is my favorite!

Plain Biscuit Dough

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup shortening
2 tablespoons butter, chilled
1 cup milk

Heat oven to 450°. Adjust oven rack to center position.

In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, soda, and salt. Cut in chilled shortening and butter until you have pieces the size of small peas. Make a well in center of dry ingredients; pour in milk. Add any cheese or spices at this point.  With a wooden spoon, gently blend dry ingredients into the milk, just until mixture is clumping together. If necessary, add a few more teaspoons of milk.
Transfer dough to a floured board. 

Roll out in a circle about 1/2-inch thick. Using a 2 1/2 to 3-inch biscuit cutter, cut out and place on ungreased baking sheet or on parchment paper. Bake on center oven rack for about 10 to 12 minutes, until tops are browned.
