Onion and Cheddar Biscuits

This recipe is from Elaine Sweet in Dallas, Tx., and out of Taste of Home. I made a few changes as I think the altitude makes some difference in the liquid. They are tender and delicious.

Onion and Cheddar Biscuits

1/2 C finely chopped sweet onion
8 TBS butter, divided
1/2 C balsamic vinegar
2 C flour
2 TBS sugar
1 TB baking powder
!/2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 C shredded cheddar cheese
4 green onions, chopped
1/2 C buttermilk (I had to add more, probably used 2/3 C)

In a small skillet, saute sweet onion in 2 TBS of the butter till tender. Add vinegar;cook and stir until liquid is evaporated. Let cool.

In a small bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and seasonings. Cut in remaining butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the onion mixture, cheese, and green onions. Stir in buttermilk with a fork just until moistened.

Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead 6-8 times. Pat or roll out to 1/2 in. thickness; cut and place 2 in. apart on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
