  • 8.5 oz. (about 2 cups) all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter cut into small cubes
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup cold milk

Butter Topping:


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • In a medium mixing bowl mix together flour, baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder until well combined.
  • Using a fork or pastry cutter, cut butter into flour mixture until mixture is crumbly. Mix in cheese. Mix in cold milk just until combined (do not overmix).
  • Drop biscuits (about 3 tablespoons of dough per biscuit) onto a nonstick baking sheet or a baking sheet lined with silpats or parchment paper.
  • Mix together 3 tablespoons melted butter, 1/2 teaspoon garlic, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in small bowl then brush lightly on top of each roll reserving rest of butter mixture for later.
  • Bake biscuits at 425 degrees F for about 10-15 minutes or until browned on bottom. Remove from oven and while still hot, brush more melted butter mixture on top.
  • Makes 12 biscuits


SNAPPY TIPS: These biscuits are best served warm right out of the oven, but you can reheat them later if you need to. Sprinkle a little dried parsley on top of rolls for a little color.
SNAPPY SUBSTITUTIONS: Instead of cheddar cheese, use your favorite shredded cheese.
