All the flaky, buttery goodness you love in my Buttery Biscuits just got taken up some notches with the addition of cheese and garlic!
Alison:
Serves: 8 biscuits
Grocery List
  • 2 c. unbleached flour
  • 2½ tsp. baking powder
  • ¾ tsp. salt
  • 6 T. butter
  • ¾ c. milk (or buttermilk for the best biscuits ever)
Here's how...
  1. Into a mixer bowl, put flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix well.
  2. Cut cold butter into pieces and add them to the flour mixture. Turn the mixer on low, or use a pastry cutter, and mix the butter just until the butter is in pea-sized pieces.
  3. Turn the mixer on low and slowly pour in the milk or buttermilk.
  4. Mix JUST until the dough is mostly pulled together and then immediately stop. There will still be some crumbs at the bottom of the bowl.
  5. Pour the whole mess onto a cutting board and gently pull the pile together , and flatten it a bit. Flip it over one time to collect all of the crumbs. Gently press it together until it is about an inch thick.
  6. Use a skinny glass or a biscuit cuter to cut out circles.
  7. Gently place them on a cookie sheet and bake in a preheated 450 degree oven for about 12 minutes or until just golden on top.
  8. Now, here's where things get fun. Grate about 4 oz. of cheddar cheese to make about 1 cup; I used white cheddar. Press the grated cheese onto the top of each biscuit, gently pressing it into the tops.
  9. Melt 3 T. of butter and to it add ½ tsp. chopped, fresh garlic. Brush the melted garlic butter over the top of the cheesy biscuits.
