Cheddar & Garlic Biscuits

After years of tweaking, I have finally come up with perfectly delicious, soft and fluffy cheddar and garlic biscuits.  Making your own biscuits from scratch is quick and simple and the results are well worth the effort.  These are extremely addictive.  My husband keeps telling me to call them the "Jenkins' Fat Belly Biscuits".  Somehow, I have a feeling that that name isn't quite going to catch on.  

Yields 18 biscuits 
  • 2 c all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp sugar 
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder 
  • 1/4 tsp onion salt 
  • 1/8 tsp pepper 
  • 3/4 c butter, melted, divided 
  • 1 c milk
  • 1 c shredded cheddar cheese 
  • 1/4 tsp garlic salt


Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

In a large bowl, sift together the flour and baking powder.  Stir in the sugar, salt, garlic powder, onion salt and pepper until well combined.

Add 1/2 cup of the melted butter, milk and cheddar to the flour mixture and stir until just combined.

Drop the dough on a greased baking sheet by 3 tbsp.  Bake for 11 to 13 minutes, or until golden brown.

Meanwhile, combine the remaining 1/4 c of melted butter with the garlic salt in a small bowl.

When the biscuits are done baking, remove them from the oven and brush each one with the garlic butter mixture.

Serve warm and enjoy!
