Garlic Cheddar Cheese Biscuits

What would your Thanksgiving be like without a biscuit?!   On second thought, let's not think about that right now and let's think of how wonderful your meal will be with one of these tasty biscuits on your plate. This biscuit was originally discovered when invited to a soup and bread dinner where it was bring some food to pass and I made beer cheese soup with cheddar biscuits. Although, the beer cheese soup was gone at the end of the night, the cheddar biscuits were a hit at the meal.

I apologize on the no photos for this dish. My time was limited to making the soup, the biscuits and an appetizer in 50 minutes, so the camera never made it out. I felt like I was in a timed cooking challenge.

Garlic Cheddar Cheese Biscuits

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/4 Cup self rising flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley flakes
  • 1 Cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1+ Cup buttermilk
  • Salt
Garlic Butter Ingredients:
  • 1/4 Cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • dash salt
  • 1/8 tsp dried parsley flakes

Preparation:
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, dried parley flakes and shredded cheddar cheese. Stir to combine and dispurse the cheese evenly.
  • Add 1 cup buttermilk to dry mixture and stir until combined. If the mix is not fully incorporated (aka, dry flour still at the bottom of the bowl), add more buttermilk, one Tbsp at a time and stir in. When the consistency is gooey and sticky and there are no dry spots in the bowl, you have achieved the right texture.
  • Using a 1/4 measuring scoop, place the mixture on a greased baking sheet, spacing at least one inch apart.
  • Place in oven and cook for 11-13 minutes, until the tops are golden brown.
  • While biscuits are cooking, in a microwave safe bowl, melt the butter. Once melted (and cooled slightly), add garlic powder, salt and dried parsley flakes and stir together.
  • When the biscuits come out of the oven, top with garlic butter.
  • Either serve right away or place is a basket and wrap with a towel until ready to serve.

Happy Baking!
