For Cheddar Cheese Biscuits:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated white sugar
  • 5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup shortening, cubed
  • 3/4 stick, unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1 egg, cold
  • 3/4 buttermilk, cold
  • 1 1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese, plus extra for topping on the biscuits
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

For Lobster:

  • 1 2-pound lobster
  • 3 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 tablespoon chives, finely chopped


For Cheddar Cheese Biscuits:

  • Place cubed butter, shortening and buttermilk in freezer for about 15-20 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 425F degrees and line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the cheddar cheese and pepper and set on the side.
  • In a separate small bowl, whisk together egg and buttermilk together and set on the side.
  • In mixing bowl for standing mixer, shift together flour, white, baking powder, cream of tartar and salt.
  • With paddle attachment to standing mixer, on slow speed, add the cubed shortening and butter to the flour mixture. Once the flour has a coarse texture, add the cheddar and black pepper to the mixture.
  • Add the egg mixture all at once to the mixer and the dough will start to come together.
  • Dust a work surface area with flour.
  • Knead and fold the dough about 6 times in both directions.
  • Pat out dough down so it is about 1 inch thick and into a rectangular shape to cut into twelve biscuits or use a 2 inch cutter to make round biscuits.
  • Sprinkle the top of each biscuit with ample cheddar cheese and fresh ground black pepper.
  • Bake in oven for 12-15 minutes. If there are any biscuits waiting to be baked, place in freezer until ready to bake in oven.
  • Once out of the oven, set on side to cool.

For Lobster:

I personally love steamed lobster, since the meat comes out more tender and preserves the natural flavor better.

  • Place lobster in freezer until ready to cook.
  • In a large pot that can fit the lobster comfortably.
  • Fill the pot with about 2 inches of salted water.
  • Set steaming rack in the middle of the pot and bring the water to boil over high heat.
  • Place lobster in the pot for about 18 minutes for a 2 pound lobster and cover with lid.
    • For one pound lobster, you only need about 10 minutes.
  • Once finished, use tong to pull the lobster out of the pot to sit and cool.
  • De-shell the lobster and chop the lobster tail into smaller pieces.
  • Mix with melted butter and chives.


  • Warm on the biscuits with either microwave or oven set at 200F degrees.
  • Slice the biscuits in half.
  • Place buttered lobster meat in biscuit.
  • Enjoy!
