Cheese Biscuits (https://food52.com/recipes/11454-cheese-biscuits)

The recipe doesn't mention any yeast but Merrill S. mentions yeast in the comments. I would like to make this for Thanksgiving. Would you please clarify if there is any yeast and if yes, at what point/how is it added in? Many thanks and a lovely holiday to you!

Most cheese biscuit recipes are baking powder biscuits with cheese added.
No yeast.
another good & typical recipe.

Am mystified by Merrill's comment about yeast in the recipe.
But/and if you like working with yeast or its results, see something like this recipe:

Hi Homa! Yes, Nancy is right—in my experience, biscuits are generally made with baking powder as the leavening, and this recipe uses that technique, too. (I'm guessing Merrill meant "leavening" more generally instead of yeast!) I'd recommend moving forward with the recipe as written, using baking powder. Enjoy the biscuits!
