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 c all-purpose flour
- 2 tsp baking powder

- 6 tbsp butter cold and cut in cubes
- 1 c milk (I used 1/2 c heavy cream, 1/2 c 2% milk)
- 1 c mild cheddar cheese shredded
- 3 tbsp butter melted
- 1/4 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 1/4 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.
Recipe slightly adapted from Cinnamon Spice & Everything Nice and the Slow Roasted Italian.
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!
Do they freeze well?
they look lush!

I’m right there with you. I don’t want to take an hour and half to make something just to say I did it from scratch.
These would be so good with a bowl of beef stew!
Thanks Cheryl! And yes, a bowl of beef stew would perfect with this. Yum!

Could you check the recipe? How much milk? Looks yummy!
Thanks for catching that Susan! I just updated it – 1 c. of milk total. Buttermilk or whole milk can be used.
Is this your regular biscuit recipe, minus the cheese and toppings?
Hi Adele- I haven’t made it without the cheese and topping before.
