Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 400°. In a bowl, using a fork, stir the flour, cheese, cornmeal, sugar, thyme, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Using a pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal.

  • In a small bowl, whisk the buttermilk with the egg yolks. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir with a fork until a dough forms.

  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat it into a 1/2-inch-thick disk. Using a 2 1/2-inch round biscuit cutter, cut out as many biscuits as possible. Transfer the biscuits to a baking sheet. Gather the dough and repeat, handling the dough as little as possible.

  • Bake the biscuits in the upper and lower thirds of the oven for 18 minutes, or until golden; switch the pans halfway through baking. Transfer the biscuits to racks and let cool slightly and serve.
