Cheese and Garlic Biscuits

  • Currently 4/5
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
5 tbl butter
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar
1 clove garlic, minced
2/3 cup milk
1. Preheat oven to 350F.  Lightly grease a baking sheet.
2. In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Rub in butter lightly with finger tips until mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Stir in cheese and garlic. Make a well in the center of the mixture and pour in the milk, reserving 1 teaspoon for a glazing the scones. Gently mix, just until combined. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and put in fridge to rest for 20-30 min.
3. Turn out onto a lightly floured board and knead briefly and lightly. Be careful not to overwork the dough, or the biscuits will be tough and heavy. Press out dough to form a 1 inch thick round. Cut into 8 wedges, like scones. Place on prepared tray and brush with a little milk.
4. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 20 minutes, or until light brown. Serve hot or let cool on a wire rack.
