  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F and place a 10-inch cast-iron pan in the oven to preheat.
  • Whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl to blend.
  • Using a pastry cutter, cut the cheddar cheese, half of the goat cheese and 4 tablespoons of cold butter into the flour mixture until the butter resembles small pea-size pieces.
  • Form a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour the buttermilk into the well.
  • Stir just until the mixture is moistened but still lumpy.
  • Fold in the remaining goat cheese.
  • Remove the cast-iron pan from the oven and melt 1 tablespoon of butter in the pan.
  • Drop 6 mounds of dough into the hot pan, spacing evenly apart.
  • Brush the tops of the biscuits generously with some of the melted butter.
  • Bake 10 minutes. Brush with some of the remaining butter and continue to bake until golden brown on the top and the bottom, about 10 minutes longer.
  • Remove the pan from the oven then brush the biscuits with the remaining melted butter and sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese. Cool slightly.
  • Serve warm and enjoy.
