I searched high and low for a good cheesy garlic biscuit recipe to go with our Cajun chicken pasta tonight (which, again, was heavenly. One of my new favorite foods for sure). I finally came across these at allrecipes.com and decided to give them a try.
They were very tasty, but I think I made them a little too big because they turned out very, very flat. Next time I make them I'll try them smaller. I think I'm also going to try to put the garlic into the batter and bake it since the butter w/garlic on the top was a bit much for me- too buttery. Otherwise I give them 2 thumbs up.
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
5 tablespoons butter
1 cup milk
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 clove garlic, minced
Pre-heat oven to 450°. Sift the flour, salt and baking powder into a large bowl. Cut in the butter until it is coarse crumbles. Make a well in the center of the flour mix and pour in the milk and cheese. Mix until well combined.
Scoop spoonfuls of batter onto an ungreased baking sheet.
Cook for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Brush melted butter and garlic mixture over the still warm biscuits.
