Mini Pimento BLT Cheddar Biscuits

Try this delicious bite sized savory treat for parties or a simple weeknight dinner!
Servings 3 1/2 dozen

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups Unbleached Self-Rising Flour
  • 4 ounces sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup 8 ounces heavy cream
  • 1 cup pimento cheese
  • 2 cups arugula leaves
  • 20 cherry tomatoes
  • 15-20 strips bacon

Instructions
 

To make the cheddar biscuits:

  • Preheat your oven to 425°F, with a rack in the upper third.
  • To make the dough by hand: Grate or shred the cheese; you should have about 1 cup. Toss it together with the flour.
  • Add the cream, stirring to make a cohesive dough. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface.
  • Pat the dough flat 3/4" to 1" thick; the thicker the disc, the taller the biscuits.
  • Use a 1 1/2" cutter (or the size of your choice) to cut rounds. Place the biscuits on your parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush the tops of the biscuits with cream or milk (optional: this will help brown their crust.)
  • Bake the biscuits for 10 minutes, until they're golden brown. Remove them from the oven.

Assemble the Biscuits:

  • Slice each biscuit open (once cooled enough to handle).
  • Spread with pimento cheese.
  • Layer on bacon, arugula, and slice of cherry tomato. Top with other half of biscuit.
  • Use a toothpick to skewer together. Enjoy!
Tried this recipe?Let us know how it was!

I love tailoring recipes to fit my favorite flavors so you can certainly do the same. Swap the pimento cheese out for another spread or leave it off altogether. Thinly sliced ham and a dab of honey would be another dynamite combo. Or just pop these biscuits straight onto a serving tray as is and watch them quickly disappear!

    1. Yay! Thanks for the comment (and for pinning!)!

  3. These look like they were rolled ala ‘slice and bake’ style??? Great idea if so.

  4. Oh, great :) This week is my birthday party and I search whole day for a good appetizers and this are the winner! Thank you so much :)

  5. I’m hosting a tea-party themed baby shower for 85 guests, and will have to make as much ahead of time as possible. Can the biscuits be frozen until needed? And if so, was is the maximum length of time that you would recommend freezing them? Thanks for the recipe, and for your suggestions!

  6. Could you please help this novice baker out with describing and walking me through the dry ingredient:
    2 cups 8 ozs. flour
    and the liquid ingredient 1 cup 8 oz. heavy cream.
    Thank you so much!

  7. Working on a batch now.. requires more than 1 cup of heavy cream, otherwise it doesn’t hold together. Will let ya know how the end product turns out

  8. Hi, Courtney. I may be a bit dense, so I will ask the Dumb Question. In your ingredients list you say “2 cups 8 ounces..flour”. Since 8 ounces = 1 cup, are you saying I need a total of 3 cups of flour? Same with the heavy cream. You say “1 cup 8 ounces”, so do I need a total of 2 cups of cream?

    1. Hi Sharon! Thanks for catching that. It’s just 2 cups flour!

      1. Thanks, Courtney… is it also just 1 cup heavy cream?

  9. Robin Owens says:

    If not using the pimiento cheese, what do you recommend to use? Just plain mayo or seasoned mayo? Only leaving off the pimiento cheese because we have a couple of other dishes with cheese.

  10. There is not fat in this recipe. Is that the correct recipe? I have never made biscuits without shortening or butter. thank you

  11. Is the correct recipe? I have never made biscuits without shortening or butter. thank you

    1. Courtney Whitmore says:

      Yes, the fat in the heavy cream is the substitute!
