Nothing beats homemade biscuits. They are the epitome of comfort food to me. And this biscuit recipe is one of the easiest out there!
I was craving biscuits the other day (totally normal right?) and looked up recipes online. But I didn’t have exactly the right ingredients for the recipe so I fudged a little, hoping they would turn out. And they did! Woohoo. I love when that happens. These homemade biscuits with cheddar and garlic melt in your mouth. It’s hard to stop at just one.

- 2 cups all-purpose flour

- ¼ tsp garlic salt
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or use non-stick baking sheets.
- In a large mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, sugar, garlic salt.
- Whisk until well combined.
- Add butter and with a pastry blender or knives, cut into mix until small pea-sized crumbs start to form.
- Add cheese and fold into mix.
- Add milk and mix just until wet. Do not over mix.
- Drop heaping spoonfuls onto baking sheet (approx ¼ c).
- Bake for 10-12 minutes, until biscuits are golden brown.
- While biscuits bake, melt remaining butter in small mixing bowl in microwave (approx 30 seconds).
- Add ¼ teaspoon garlic salt.
- Stir with pastry brush.
- Remove biscuits from oven, brush with melted butter mixture.
- Serve immediately.
You might want to make a double or triple batch…. Each recipe makes approximately 18 biscuits, depending on how big you make them. And I’m pretty sure that I could eat a plate of biscuits alone for dinner. Who needs a main dish? Not me!
