Woohoo.  I love when that happens.  These Cheddar Biscuits with garlic melt in your mouth.  It’s hard to stop at just one. Melt In Your Mouth Cheddar Biscuits-  these biscuits are amazing!

I’m pretty sure you already have the ingredients you need in your pantry and fridge.  They are super simple and make this less intimidating to make, in my humble opinion.  When I see 101910391 ingredients and 29102910 steps, I click away or turn the page.  No thank you.

Garlic Cheddar Biscuits

  • ¼ tsp garlic salt
