Expert Tips

For a less zesty version of this biscuit recipe, substitute regular Monterey Jack cheese, also known as California Jack or simply Jack.

All-purpose flour is milled from the inner part of the wheat kernel and contains neither the germ (the sprouting part) nor the bran (the outer coating). Since 1940, enriching all-purpose flour with thiami, riboflavin, niacin and iron has been encouraged by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. All-purpose flour is available bleached or unbleached. Bleached flour has been whitened by a bleaching agent. Both are suitable for all kinds of baking.
