Garlic Cheese Biscuits

When I make Garlic Cheese Biscuits it’s usually from the Betty Crocker Cookbook that I received many, many years ago as a wedding gift. They are made with Bisquick, it’s a quick and easy recipe and they always turn out great. I’m currently out of Bisquick and wanted Garlic Cheese Biscuits to serve with a stew that I have in the crockpot, so decided to make them from scratch. They are just as quick and easy to make as they are when using Bisquick and they are yummy.

If you want Garlic Cheese Herb Biscuits then add 1 tsp dried parsley or Italian seasoning to the dough. You can also add it to the topping that you brush on top of the biscuits when they come out of the oven.

I like to use parchment paper on my baking sheet to prevent sticking and for easier cleanup. Drop the dough by rounded spoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet or you can use an ice cream scoop if you’d like them to be all the same size and symmetrical. This recipe should make 12-14 biscuits.
