Cheddar Garlic Biscuits

I love homemade biscuits. I really can not stomach the taste of the canned biscuits you can buy in the grocery store. However I realize that I don't have the time to make homemade biscuits all the time. This recipe though is really quick to make and pairs well with a lot of dishes. From start to finish it takes about 30 minutes. I did sub evaporated milk for the cream, mainly because I did not have cream on hand and second to cut a few calories.

Cheddar Garlic Biscuits
adapted from Cooks Country Dec./Jan. 2006

2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup cheddar cheese
2 minced garlic cloves
1 1/2 cups cream or evaporated milk

Adjust oven to upper middle position and heat oven to 425 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.

Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and garlic in medium bowl. Stir in 1/2 cup cheese. Add 1 1/4 cups cream and stir with wooden spoon until dough forms, about 30 seconds. Transfer dough from bowl to countertop, leaving dry, floury bits in bowl. In 1 tablespoon increments, add up to 1/4 cup cream to dry bits in bowl, mixing with wooden spoon after each addition, until moistened. Add moistened bits to rest of dough and knead by hand until smooth, about 30 seconds.

Pat dough into 8 inch circle, cut into eight wedges, and place on prepared baking sheet. Bake until just beginning to brown, 7 to 9 minutes. Remove baking sheet from oven, sprinkle 1 1/2 teaspoons remaining cheese on each biscuit, and return to oven, rotating baking sheet from front to back. Bake until golden brown and cheese topping has melted, 7 to 9 minutes. Serve warm.

  1. I hate canned biscuits, but frozen are actually pretty good. I'll have to give these a try!
