Cheesy Garlic Buttermilk Biscuits
Freshly made cheesy garlic buttermilk biscuits on the table in only 20 minutes. My update on an old family recipe, these savory, cheesy biscuits pair well with soups and stews. Serve right out of the oven with lots of soft butter. This recipe makes 8 biscuits, but you’ll want to make a double batch!
2 cups All Purpose flour (plus more for dusting)
1 tsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp garlic powder
4 ounces shredded cheese
1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
3/4 to 1 cup buttermilk
1/2 stick of melted butter
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
In a food processor fitted with the steel blade, combine dry ingredients and the cheese and pulse to combine. Add the cold butter, pulse until the butter combines with flour to the size of peas. Add buttermilk, process to combine – until dough sticks to the blade and combines to a ball. Place dough on a floured surface. Sprinkle top with a little more flour, and pat or roll out to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut with 2″ biscuit cutter (or whatever size/shape you desire), place on greased or parchment lined cookie sheet at least 1 inch apart. Brush tops with melted butter. Bake 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes, or until biscuits rise and are golden. Serve immediately.
