Recipe from Two Peas and Their Pod
• 2 cups flour
• 1 teaspoon sugar
• 1 tablespoon baking powder
• 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
• 3/4 teaspoon salt
• 1 stick of butter
• 1 cup milk
• 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
• 2 cloves garlic, minced
• 1/3 cup fresh chopped cilantro
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Mix the butter into the dry ingredients. For me, it worked well to let the butter sit out for a bit to warm up. Blend until the mixture has pea size chunks of butter left.
Pour in the milk and mix until the ingredients are moist. Don't overmix.
Gently stir in the cheese, garlic, and cilantro.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. With a spoon or your hands, scoop the biscuits onto the baking sheet. For jumbo biscuits, use about 1/3 cup of dough. For smaller biscuits, use about 3 tablespoons of dough.
Bake the jumbo biscuits for 15-18 minutes. Bake the smaller biscuits for 12-15 minutes. Let them bake until they are golden brown and cooked throughout.
Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack. Serve warm.
