cheddar and herb biscuits


Original Source: forkinit.blogspot.com

Picture Source: absfavoriterecipes

Course: Breads

Prep Time: 10 Min

Cook Time: 14 Min

Total Time: 24 Min

Serves: 16


  • Biscuits:
  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 3 tablespoons butter cold (or room temp works too)
  • 1 cup buttermilk No buttermilk? Use 1 c milk and 1 1/2 tsp. vinegar… let them sit together until little bubbly about 10 minutes
  • 2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • Buttery Topping:
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley flakes not necessary… just pretty
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder (more or less to suit your tastes)
  • pinch salt


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, garlic powder and salt. Cut in shortening and butter until coarse crumbs are formed. Lightly mix in grated cheese. Mix in buttermilk just until moist (dry spots here and there are ok – the biscuits will be tough if they are over mixed). Drop the biscuits onto a greased or lined baking sheet (i use my cookie scooper). Bake for 12-14 minutes, until browned and golden. While the biscuits are baking, in a small bowl combine butter, parsley, garlic powder and salt. Right when the biscuits come out of the oven, brush the butter/herb mixture over the biscuits evenly (alternately, you can dip the top of the biscuit into the butter mixture). Serve immediately.

My Take

These are VERY good! I think if these where sat right beside Red Lobsters version it would far very well. The last batch I made I had some left over whipping cream and half and half in the fridge so I mixed them together added some vinegar and used that in place of buttermilk and they tasted great. This is a very easy and yummy recipe and most of the ingredients are in the pantry so it can be a quick add on to any meal. They also freeze and reheat well so I make a double batch and put the rest in the freezer then all I have to do is pull out a few pop them in the microwave which can be nice on a busy night.
