One Saturday I really wanted biscuits.  I looked up a couple recipes was going through the ingredients I’d need.  “Flour, baking powder, milk, butter…WAIT!”  I suddenly realized I didn’t have any butter.  I was torn.  Put on jeans and go get butter or forgo delicious cheddar biscuits?  After looking up several different butter substitutes (and not having any of them), I decided to mix together a few things and see what happened.  I needed cheddar biscuits, but there was no way I was putting on real pants.

The result is the best cheddar biscuits I’ve ever had.  They were soft and fluffy.  They were perfectly moist and had a great crumb (and they don’t dry out if you store them which is an added bonus).
