Gramercy Tavern’s Bacon Cheddar Biscuits
2¼ cups all-purpose flour
3¾ tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. ground red pepper
½ cup diced slab bacon (about 3 oz.)
3 tbsp. unsalted butter, cubed and chilled
¾ cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (about 3 oz.)
1½ cups heavy cream
2 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted

1. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients; cover and freeze 8 hours.

2. Preheat oven to 425°F. Cook bacon over medium-low heat about 6 minutes or until bacon is brown but not crisp; drain on paper towels. Cool completely.

3. Toss cubed butter with flour mixture in a large bowl; mix with hands, flattening butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in cheese and bacon. Add cream; stir until just combined. Scoop dough evenly into 1 tbsp. mounds; arrange 1 in. apart on baking sheets.

4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Transfer biscuits to a wire rack; brush with melted butter. Serve hot or at room temperature.
