Garlic Cheese Biscuits / Buttermilk Southern Biscuits
Garlic Cheese Biscuits
1 cup milk
1⁄2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon sugar
2 cups self raising flour (up to 1/2 cup more may be necessary)
3 garlic cloves, minced very fine
1 1⁄2 cups grated cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Beat together in a medium bowl the milk, mayo, sugar, 2 cups flour and garlic, adding 1/2 cup more flour (if necessary) so that dough can be dropped from a spoon and hold its shape. At that point, streak dough with cheese. Drop by spoonful 1 inch apart on a greased baking sheet.
Brush a little melted butter on the top of each biscuit and bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown.
1 stick frozen butter
2 1/2 cups White Lily® Enriched Bleached Self-rising Flour(make the best baking products).
1 cup cold buttermilk
2 tablespoons butter, melted to brush on top
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 475°. Grate frozen butter using large holes of a box grater. Toss together grated butter and flour in a medium bowl. Chill 10 minutes.
Add buttermilk and stir about 10 or 15 times.
Pour dough out onto a floured surface. Lightly sprinkle flour on top of dough. Using a lightly floured rolling pin, roll dough into a 3/4-inch-thick rectangle. Fold dough in half making sure ends meet. Repeat rolling and folding process 4 more times.
Roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with a 2 1/2-inch floured biscuits cutter, reshaping dough pieces and flouring as needed.
Place biscuits rounds on a lightly greased jelly-roll pan.make sure biscuits are touching each other, this will help them to rise. Bake at 475° for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
