Garlic Biscuits

These biscuits are great. I had one guy tell me they were so good, that if my wife ever dies, he would marry me. I told him if my wife ever dies, I will stay single. I figure if a guy wants to marry me over biscuits, then, Russ buddy, here is a way to get a date. HA HA

Anyway, here is the recipe.


1 pound 15 ounces cake flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 Tablespoon each, salt and sugar
1 pound cold butter
3 Tablespoons dried parsley
3 Tablespoons granulated garlic
10 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
or your favorite shredded cheese.
2 cups buttermilk



Mix all the dry ingredients, then blend in the butter by hand, mixer, or pastry cutter. Mix the cheese in after you have blended in the butter to about the size of peas. Add the buttermilk and mix just until mixed. The dough might even be a little dry, and that's fine. Do not add more milk. If the mix is a little dry, it will turn out really good and flaky. If you add more milk because you don't want a little dry spot, then they will be good, but not as good.



You can roll them out and cut squares, that way there will be no re-rolling or you can do a spoon-drop method, or use an ice cream scoop or biscuit cutter. If you cannot get cake flour, then all-purpose will work just fine. Cake flour has less protein so the biscuit will be flakier.



Use parchment paper or Silpat on a baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes, depending on how thick your biscuits are. These are very good.

We do have same-sex marriage in BC, but I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO INTEREST in it. If I date, it will be with a woman.

They look delicious, but will the garlic bother the date?;)

Everybody order 'Happiness', my Mom did.

Russ,
you can leave the Garlic out and just have a cheesy biscuit or you can add your choice of spice and herbs and change them up. But these are very good. Rick b

These biscuits are so good they would keep Dracula away.

You can cut back on the garlic, if you really want the Count to come visit you. Rick
