A Biscuit Recipe

This afternoon as I was rummaging in the fridge for lunch, I came across a take-home box from Ruby Tuesday's that my roommate had left and said was fair game.  Most of it looked distasteful -- old green beans, weird broccoli soup -- but there was a single garlic-herb-cheese biscuit which looked edible, so I ate it.  It was quite good, but I was immediately seized with a desire to make my own biscuits!  So I did, just going "by feel" without a recipe, and they turned out so well that I thought I'd share what I did.

Garlic Cheese Biscuits

1.5 cups all purpose flour
1 T baking powder (approximately; I didn't measure, and I think I used a little less)
about 2 tsp. salt
garlic powder - about 1/2 tsp?*
a sprinkle of dried onions*
6 T butter, margarine or other solid fat
sprinklings of dried herbs - I used parsley
cheddar cheese

Mix the dry ingredients, cut in the fat, add herbs and cheese, and stir in enough milk to make a wet dough.  (About 3/4 cup, maybe?  Again I didn't measure.)  Drop spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet and bake in a preheated 450-degree oven for about 10 minutes.  Eat them hot!

*You could also probably use fresh garlic and/or onions, finely minced.  But this is what I had on hand (and what I suspect the restaurant used!)


  1. I bet those would be delicious with fresh rosemary instead of parsley.

  2. Oooh, I bet that would be good! I'll have to try that sometime :)
