Garlic Cheddar Biscuits


Prep. Time: 15 – 20 minutes                   Cooking Time: 10 – 12 minutes                    Servings: 12


2 cups (500 mL) all-purpose flour
2 tbsp (30 mL) baking powder
1/2 tsp (2 mL) cream of tartar
1/2 tsp (2 mL) granulated sugar
1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
1 cup (250 mL) shredded Canadian old Cheddar, Marble or Monterey Jack cheese
1/2 cup (125 mL) cold butter, cubed
1/3 cup (75 mL) chopped green onions
1 cup (250 mL) milk


2 tbsp (30 mL) butter, melted
1/4 tsp (1 mL) garlic, powder


Preheat the oven to 450°F (230°C). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder, cream of tartar,

sugar and salt. Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in cheese and green onions. Slowly add the milk, stirring with a fork, until the batter reaches a soft dough consistency.

On a lightly floured surface, knead dough gently 3 to 4 times until it holds together. Roll out to 3/4-inch (2 cm) thickness. Cut into squares or use a 3-inch (7.5 cm) cookie cutter for fun-shaped biscuits; reroll craps once to make about 12 biscuits. Place at least 2 inches (5 cm) apart on prepared baking sheet.

Topping: In a small bowl, combine melted butter and garlic powder; brush biscuits with half of the mixture.

Bake for 12 min or until starting to brown. Brush with remaining butter mixture. Bake for an additional 2 to 3 min or until golden brown. Best served warm!
