Here it is…the sister of Joie’s Biscuits. If anyone has ever been to Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede or Red Lobster, you’ve had a garlic cheese biscuit. This is my own attempt at them. While they are vastly inferior to the garlic cheese biscuits at Stampede or Red Lobster, they are quick and delicious.
Total time: 24 minutes
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 9 minutes
Serves: 4-6 people
Yield: 12 – 2 1/2 inch biscuits
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1.5 teaspoons garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 cup butter or 1/2 cup margarine
- 1 cup finely grated cheddar cheese
- 3/4 cup milk
- For Top of biscuits:
- Melted Butter
- Cheddar Cheese
Preheat oven to 450.
In a large bowl, combine flour, garlic powder, salt, and baking powder.
Cut butter/margarine into cubes and cut into flour mixture. You can use a fork or a dough tool. Mix until it resembles corn meal.
- Add the 1 cup grated cheese to the mixture and stir well.
In the bottom of the flour mixture, make a well in which to pour the milk.
Pour the milk into the well and work with fingers until you get the dough.
On a floured surface, roll the dough to a 1/4 inch thickness.
Use a 2 1/2 inch biscuit cutter to cut biscuits. You can also use a drinking glass for the shape.
Place the cut biscuits on a greased and floured pan.
Brush the cut biscuits with melted butter and sprinkle tops with cheddar cheese.
Bake for 9-10 minutes.
The biscuits WILL NOT brown like normal biscuits. Take one of the biscuits and carefully pull apart to make sure they are completely baked.
