- 2 cups flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 12 tablespoons (1½ sticks) cold, unsalted butter, diced
- ½ cup cold buttermilk, shaken
- 2 eggs, 1 reserved for egg wash
- 4 ounces beer cheese, room temperature
- 1 tablespoon water
Preheat oven to 425°F.
Put the flour and baking powder in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with dough hooks. With the mixer set on low, add in the butter and mix until the butter is broken up into little balls.
Whisk the buttermilk, whole egg and beer cheese in a measuring cup. Add it to the flour and butter mixture, still mixing on low speed. Once mixed together, remove the dough from the bowl and knead it on a floured board. Roll the dough out into a 10- by 5-inch rectangle. The dough should be around ½ inch thick. With a sharp, floured knife, cut the dough lengthwise in half and then across in quarters, making 8 rough rectangles.
Separate the second egg, place the white in a small dish and add the water to make an egg wash.
Arrange the rectangles on a baking sheet and brush the tops with the egg wash. Cook for 20–25 minutes, or until brown and somewhat puffy.
