A twist on original buttermilk biscuits – these Feta Cheese Biscuits are tall, flaky and flavorful with the addition of delicious feta!
Who doesn’t love a good biscuit? I know that biscuits are my nemesis — much like chocolate, put a plate of biscuits in front of me and whoa….
Watch me crumble!
ALL my walls come down and I literally go bonkers.
That is definitely NO exaggeration. I love bread and so making these biscuits was really quite fun and satisfying. Can feta cheese go in biscuits?
That… I can prove as a big, fat YES.
I have made many many biscuits in my lifetime, but these feta cheese biscuits top the charters. If you have feta cheese at home sitting in a tub in the fridge, then pull it out and throw these biscuits together.
Feta Cheese Biscuits
These biscuits are rather simple to make, with just a few key ingredients:
- butter (avoid using margarine as butter makes flaky biscuits!)
- all purpose flour
- baking powder
- feta cheese crumbles (one tub works well!)
Cold, cubed butter is perhaps the most important thing to have in these biscuits. I love to cube my butter and then place it in the fridge or freezer until you are ready to cut the butter into the flour.
I also love to make my own buttermilk in lieu of buying it at the market. Add a splash of vinegar to your milk and let it sit to make 3/4 of a cup is so easy!
Once you mix the dough, gently fold in the feta cheese just until mixed. Then bake in your 450 degree F oven just until golden brown. Brush with butter, crackled pepper and paprika and enjoy!
I hope you enjoy these biscuits as much as we did … they are a favorite with my kids! Pile high with your favorite jam or jelly and gobble them up!
Feta Cheese Biscuits
- 2 C all purpose flour 250 gr, spooned and leveled
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 6 Tbsp unsalted butter, cold 85 gr, cubed
- 3/4 C buttermilk, cold 180 ml
- 8 oz feta cheese crumbles
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
- In a large mixing bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, sugar, and salt until well combined. Cut in the cold butter until the mixture is crumbly - you can use a pastry cutter, food processor, mixer, or fork to do this.
- Once the mixture is crumbly, pour the cold buttermilk into the mixture and gently mix (don't over-do!) until it all comes together.
- Gently stir in the feta cheese until it's completely mixed in.
- Dump the dough onto a lightly floured surface and work it together with your hands. Pat into a rectangle and then fold into thirds (as if you are folding a letter). Turn the dough, gather crumbs, and repeat this procedure 2-3 times.
- Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and pat it into a rectangle that's 1/2 inch thick. Use a biscuit cutter (2.5 inch) or a canning jar (wide mouth) to cut the biscuits. Don't twist the glass or biscuit cutter - cut, and then pull straight up.
- Gather any scraps and re-pat out to 1.5 inch thickness. Then continue to cut until you work through the remaining dough.
- Arrange evenly spaced on your baking sheet, and brush the top with a tiny bit of melted butter.
- Bake 15-17 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool before enjoying.

I’d ask you to tag me on social media but I gave up social media several years ago (Crazy – right??!!) It was the best thing I ever did. I still love to read comments and hear from you though – so don’t be afraid to leave comments on this post as I do take the time to read and respond when I can!
