Cheesy Buttermilk Biscuits

Comfort food time!
I love a good biscuit. I also love a good melted cheese. When it comes to melting, Fontina is my favorite cheese for melting. So putting the two together just made sense to me. Serving with your favorite preserve takes these babies over the top. If you are not gluten-free you can use 1 3/4 cups regular all purpose flour and get a similar biscuit.
