I had to hurriedly snap this picture, because these biscuits did not remain on the tray. Or on the table. Or on the plates, or anywhere else you might think to look for a biscuit. Every single one was gobbled up in record time.
My Big Helper made these to go with a pot of soup, and there weren't any left. Although I thought they looked a little strange - the wheat flour made an interesting color contrast with the orangeness of the cheese, nobody else seemed to care.
They reminded us of those cheddar-y biscuits you get at that seafood chain restaurant. Know the one I mean? Except they're healthier. And still really, really good.
So, if you like those bad-for-you biscuits, try this version. They'll make a much healthier side to some soup or a nice salad than the restaurant version, and your taste buds will never know the difference.
- 1 3/4 c. white wheat flour
- 1/2 t. salt
- 1/2 t. baking powder
- 1/4 - 1/2 t. garlic powder
- 5 T. cold butter
- 1 c. milk
- 1/2 c. shredded cheddar
Here's what you do:
- Mix the dry ingredients together.
- Cut in the butter.
- Add the milk and stir until just blended.
- Add the cheddar and stir until just blended.
- Drop onto a greased cookie sheet.
- Bake at 450 for about 10 minutes.
What would you serve your biscuits with?
