Q: Patti, your garlic cheddar biscuits on Instagram look so delicious, how do you make them?

A: I’m glad you like what you saw. Oddly enough, I actually found the recipe off the back of a Davis Baking Powder. I tried it out one day and immediately fell in love – it’s been my motivation to wake up early on Sundays ever since! Try out the recipe below, and let me know on Instagram with the hashtag #pattispicks if they taste to you as good as they looked.

Ingredients:

  • 2 ¾ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp Davis Baking Powder
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 Tbsp. butter, melted

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Farenheit.
  2. Combine flour, Davis Baking Powder, garlic powder and salt.
  3. Use two forks to cut in shortening until mixture is crumbly.
  4. With a fork, add buttermilk and cheese and stir until mixture forms a soft dough.
  5. Drop dough by ¼ cupfuls onto greased cookie sheet.
  6. Brush melted butter on biscuit tops.
  7. Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
  8. Enjoy!

XOX,

Patti
