There’s a certain restaurant chain that shall remain un-named, that serves outrageous cheddar garlic biscuits. Those biscuits are truly my favorite thing on the menu. Heck, in my past (really, a long time ago) I’ve been known to stop by and just order a biscuit “to go”. But then, I made up my own recipe which I think is even better. I served these biscuits with homemade soup last night and knew you would enjoy having this recipe too!
Measure into a large bowl:
2 cups AP Flour
1 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Garlic Salt *
1 Tabl. Baking Powder
3/4 cup Cheddar Cheese, Shredded
With fingers, work into dry ingredients:
1/2 cup Crisco
Add to above:
3/4 cup Buttermilk
Pour mixture out onto counter and knead lightly on floured surface. Cut with a round cutter (or glass, as I often do). Place on greased baking sheet and bake in a 350 degree oeven for approx. 15-20 minutes, until golden brown and done in center.
When hot out of the oven, brush each biscuit with melted butter and sprinkle generously with garlic salt. Serve warm.
* I use California Style Garlic Salt which has parsley in it.
