Ingredients

2 cups (500 mL) all-purpose flour
1 tbsp (15 mL) baking powder
1 tsp (5 mL) salt
1/3 cup (75 mL) butter
1-1/2 cups (375 mL) cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 cup (125 mL) onions, finely chopped
4 slices of bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
2/3 cup (150 mL) milk

Directions

Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in mixing bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in cheese, onion, and bacon, mixing well. Add milk all at once to dry ingredients, stirring with a fork to make a soft dough. Turn out onto floured surface and knead 8-10 times. Roll out to an 8-in (20 cm) square. Cut in half crosswise, then cut each half into 6 finger-shaped biscuits. Transfer to an ungreased baking sheet lightly sprinkled with flour. Bake at 450°F (230°C) for 10-15 minutes or until light golden.

Serve warm.

Makes 12 finger biscuits.
