Back before you were a baker…

First, let me say that I think it is absolutely hysterical that I am launching this new blog with a post about cheddar biscuits when 95% of the things I bake are sweet and slathered with some sort of decadent, cream cheese-laden frosting, but here’s the thing…

Yesterday, The Boy, aka my 15-year-old son, asked casually as he strolled through the living room, “hey, do you remember those cheddar biscuits you used to make, you know back before you were a baker? They were really good.”

Remember?!?! More like how could I forget them? (actually what I remember most is the Mr’s face when he took a big ol’ bite of one that he had slathered with apricot preserves…not realizing it was a GARLIC biscuit)

Anyway, you know how it is when someone plants an idea in your head.  From that point on, ALL I could think about was those cheddar biscuits and how light and fluffy and buttery and cheesy they were.  Clearly, there was going to be no getting around making a batch…which is exactly what I did today after church…for The Boy 😉

Almost every copycat recipe I found online called for Bisquick, which is not something I ever have here in the Kitchen, but I finally found a scratch recipe here, made a few alternations, and voila



Since I was fresh out of lobster, we ate these cheesy, garlic-y puffs of heaven with some deli ham.

As my old buddy Emeril would say…

  1. I love the blog!! However it is missing one key ingredient, or maybe I did not see it.
    The recipe…. Would you be willing to share said recipe? I would understand if you did not share. It would be a shame though, not to share the buttery, fluffy and delicious goodness that is cheddar garlic biscuits.

      If you will click on the word “here” it should take you to the page where I found it. For some reason that link isn’t really showing up very well, is it? Enjoy your biscuits!
