Makes about 12 biscuits
2 cups flour*
1 tablespoon white sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cold butter, cut into bits
1 cup milk
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
- In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in cold butter using pastry blender or your fingers, until mixture looks like fine crumbs. Add cheese; then add milk gradually, reserving a few tablespoons. Stir just until dough is moistened. Add remaining tablespoon or two if needed.
- Place dough on lightly floured surface Turn a few times to coat dough in flour. Pat 1/2 inch thick. Cut with floured 2-inch round cutter (a round cup will also work). Place on ungreased cookie sheet about 1 inch apart. Bake 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.
- Meanwhile, combine 1/4 cup melted butter and garlic powder in a small bowl. Brush onto hot biscuits as soon as they are removed from oven. Serve warm.
*For a simpler and faster version, use 2 cups Bisquik and 2/3 cups milk in place of the flour, sugar, powder, salt, and cold butter (from Betty Crocker's Cookbook). They won't be quite as good, but if you're in a hurry, it will do.
