These simple drop biscuits are delicious with any supper! I have successfully substituted Spelt flour for the wheat flour for my daughter who cannot tolerate wheat. Tasty!
Garlic Cheese Biscuits
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
2 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup softened butter
1 cup milk
1/2 stick unsalted butter, melted
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In a bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, sugar, cream of tartar, garlic powder, and salt. Cut butter into flour until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add cheese and milk. Stir just until combined. If you over stir, you will end up with tough, heavy biscuits!
Drop dough onto greased baking sheet by rounded tablespoons and bake for 10 – 12 minutes or until til golden brown.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together melted butter, garlic powder, salt, and parsley. Brush biscuits with garlic butter after you pull them from the oven. Makes about 12 biscuits.
Note: You could use buttermilk instead. Just add 1/4 tsp. baking soda to dry ingredients. If the mixture seems a little dry add a bit more buttermilk.
