Paula Deen Cheese Biscuits and Mac & Cheese

After visiting the Lady & Sons a few weeks ago on vacation, and purchasing Paula's recipe book The Lady & Sons Savannah Country Cookbook, I have been obsessed with trying some of the recipes. I have 2 that I wanted to share (both I tried at the restaurant) Cheese Biscuts and The Lady's Cheesy Mac. Both very good. I want to try her Peach Cobbler next (hopefully this weekend!).

Cheese Biscuits:
-- 2 cups self-rising flour
-- 1 teaspoon baking powder
-- 1 teaspoon sugar
-- 1/3 cup shortening
-- 3/4 cup grated sharp Cheddar
-- 1 cup buttermilk
-- Salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt (to taste) and sugar together using a fork; cut in shortening until it resembles cornmeal. Add cheese. Sir in buttermilk all at one time just until blended. Do not over stir.

Drop by tablespoonfuls, or use an ice cream scoop, onto a well-greased baking sheet. Brush dough with melted butter. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes. I made about 9 biscuits.

The Lady's Cheesy Mac:

-- 4 cups cooked elbow macaroni, drained
-- 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
-- 3 eggs, beaten
-- 1/2 cup sour cream
-- 4 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces
-- 1/2 teaspoon salt
-- 1 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Once you have the macaroni cooked and drained, place in a large bowl and while still hot and add the cheddar. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and add to the macaroni mixture. Pour macaroni mixture into a casserole dish and bake for 30 to 45 minutes. Top with additional cheese if desired.
