I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Cheesy-Garlic Biscuits

Yummy!  Great with soup or just about anything else.   The trick to making a good fluffy biscuit is not over handling it and have chilled ingredients.  For this reason I will put my flour mixture in the freezer for about a half hour before I mix everything.

(makes 12)

*1 3/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
*1 teaspoon salt
*1 teaspoon baking powder
*1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
*5 tablespoons butter, frozen
*1 cup buttermilk
*1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
*1/8-1/4 cup butter, melted
*2 whole garlic cloves

~Place 1/8-1/4 cup butter & garlic clove into small saucepan.
~Melt butter over low heat
~Set aside.
~Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
~In a large bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking powder & garlic powder.
~Cover and freeze for at least 1/2 hour.
~Cut butter into cubes.
~Cut butter into flour mixture with a fork or pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal.
~Make a well in the center of the flour mixture.
~Add milk & cheddar cheese.
~Stir until just combined (do not over mix).
~Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, or spray pan with cooking spray.
~Drop by spoonfuls onto prepared pan.
~Bake for 17-20 minutes, or until lightly browned.
~Remove garlic from butter.
~Remove biscuits from oven and brush garlic butter over biscuits.

`mince garlic so you have small bits of garlic on biscuits.
