The Get 'Em Girls Guide to the Power of Cuisine: Cheddar Garlic Biscuits



This recipe is stupidly easy.  Like...I can't even convey to you guys how stupidly easy it is.

But, if your house is anything like mine, what's going to happen is people will eat them and say, "Hey, these taste exactly like those Red Lobster biscuits."

Because they do.

I made these to go with the steak that will be posted on Wednesday, and the meal was a huge success.

This cookbook is one I got from the library book sale back in North Carolina, and I've meant to make things out of it several times, but I never quite got around to it.  You can tell by all of the dog-eared pages in the book that my intentions were good.

It's funny, because it's something of a "cooking for single gals" kind of cookbook, and I am clearly not in that demographic, but it's one of my favorite cookbooks I've read.  (I read cookbooks.  Is that weird?  That might be weird.)  I like the recipes, as well as the fact that there's quasi-dating advice in it, and also tips for having a put-together kitchen.

Even if you just read food blogs to see what you could make if you ever set foot in your kitchen, make these.  Trust me.


Cheddar Garlic Biscuits
Makes 24-36
From The Get 'Em Girls Guide to the Power of Cuisine


Ingredients



For the baking of the biscuits:

2 cups baking or biscuit mix (like Bisquick)
2/3 cup milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

For brushing on top:

8 Tbsp. melted unsalted butter
1/2 tsp. garlic powder


Preheat oven to 450°F.

Combine the baking mix, milk, and cheese in a medium bowl until you get a soft dough.  Drop the dough in large tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes.

Mix the garlic powder and butter in a small bowl and brush the mixture over the hot biscuits.

Serve immediately and accept compliments and Red Lobster comparisons.
