Onion & Cheddar Biscuits

Yum! Brandon and I really enjoyed these, but the kids didn't really care for them. I'm guessing the balsamic onions were a little strong for them. They were a perfect accompaniment to the soup we had for dinner. These do take a little while to prepare, so double the recipe and put some in the freezer for later!

Yield: 6 biscuits

1/4 cup finely chopped sweet onion
4 Tbsp. cold butter, divided
1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. garlic salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 green onions, chopped (I didn't included these)
1/4 cup buttermilk

In a small skillet, saute sweet onion in 1 Tbsp. butter until tender. Add vinegar; cook and stir until liquid is evaporated. Cool.

In a small bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and seasonings. Cut in remaining butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the onion mixture, cheese and green onions. Stir in buttermilk just until moistened.

Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead 6-8 times. Pat or roll out to 1/2" thickness; cut with a floured 2-1/2" biscuit cutter. Place 2 in. apart on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
