Method

Preheat the oven to 425°F. 

Place 10-inch cast iron skillet in the oven to heat.

Whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl. 

Cut in 4 tablespoons butter using a pastry blender or two butter knives, until it reaches a crumbly consistency. 

Stir in half of the cheese. 

Make a well in the middle of the ingredients and pour in the buttermilk. 

Stir until just moistened, adding an extra tablespoon of milk if needed.

Using a pot holder, remove the hot skillet from the oven and place two tablespoons of butter in it. 

Swirl to melt the butter. 

When the butter has melted, use a 1/4-cup measure to drop batter into the pan. It's fine for the biscuits to touch. 

Melt remaining butter and brush tops of biscuits with melted butter if desired. 

Bake until lightly browned, 14 to 16 minutes. 

Remove from oven and sprinkle with remaining grated cheese. Serve warm.
