    We can't imagine any meal that wouldn't be improved by the addition of these rich, savory biscuits. Cheddar, a medium-firm, sharp-tasting cheese, originated in England, but some of the world's best Cheddar is now made on this continent, in Canada and in Oregon and in Vermont. If your Cheddar is orange instead of white, it was probably tinted with annatto, a spice typically used in Latin American dishes.

    Makes 8 to 10 Biscuits

    3 cups all-purpose flour
    1 tablespoon granulated sugar
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
    1/2 pound (2 sticks) unsalted butter, chilled, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
    1 1/2 cups coarsely shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
    1 cup cold buttermilk

    Preheat the oven to 375° F.
    Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Add the butter and rub it in with your fingertips until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Toss in the grated Cheddar. Gradually stir in the buttermilk, mixing only until a dough is formed.
    Divide the dough into 8 to 10 pieces and roughly shape each piece into a ball. Place the biscuits 2 inches apart on an un-greased baking sheet.
    Bake until golden, about 30 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
