  • 2 1/4  cups 
    all-purpose soft-wheat flour, such as White Lily
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons 
    baking powder
  • 1/2  teaspoon 
  • 1/4  teaspoon 
  • 3   tablespoons

    real bacon bits
  • 1   cup 
    shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1   cup 
    whole milk
  • 2   tablespoons 
    melted butter, divided
Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture is crumby. Add bacon bits and cheese, tossing to combine. Add milk and 1 tablespoon butter. Stir lightly until well mixed, being careful not to over mix.
Turn dough out onto a heavily floured surface. Knead dough 4 or 5 times. With floured hands, pat out dough to approximately 1/2-inch thickness. Cut dough with a 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter without twisting. Place on prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown. Brush hot biscuits with remaining 1 tablespoon butter.
