Disney Eats: Cheddar Biscuit Recipe from Round Up Rodeo. Last Year we were lucky enough to get a preview of Walt Disney World’s newest sit down themed restaurant in Hollywood Studios called Round Up Rodeo. The whole theming was fun, and the food was decent.

BBQ and Pixar, what could be wrong about that? Nothing, especially with a favorite of ours the cheddar biscuit, which Disney Eats just released the recipe so we all could make at home.

These biscuits are flaky, flavorful, and have just the right amount of cheese. The Sweet Pepper Jelly adds the perfect amount of sweetness with a tiny bit of spice. Once you try them, it’s easy to see why more than 1 million biscuits were devoured by guests in the last year!

  1. Purée red bell pepper and onion in food processor until smooth. 
  2. Bring puréed pepper mix, red pepper flakes, vinegar, 3/4 cup sugar, and salt to boil in medium saucepan. Reduce heat to simmer and continue simmering, stirring occasionally with rubber spatula, for 10-15 minutes, until reduced by slightly less than 1/3. 
  3. Combine pectin and remaining 1/4 cup sugar in small bowl. Add to simmering pepper mix. Stir constantly for 5 minutes until jelly thickens.

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line baking sheet with parchment and set aside. 
  2. Grate frozen butter using a food processor with shredding disk or cheese grater. Set aside. 
  3. Whisk bread flour, cake flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in large mixing bowl. Add frozen shredded butter and whisk until butter is evenly distributed. 
  4. Add buttermilk and shredded cheese and stir with spoon until soft dough forms. 
  5. Transfer dough to a floured surface and roll into 1/2-inch thick rectangle. 
  6. Fold dough into thirds and roll to flatten slightly. Repeat 3 times. Roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness. 
  7. Cut into circles using a 3-inch round biscuit cutter. Place on prepared baking pan. 
  8. Bake for 14-15 minutes, until tops are golden and the bottom of the biscuits begin to brown.
