Easy Cheddar Bay Biscuits Recipe


Ingredients

For the biscuits:
2 cup all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp granulated sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter chilled
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp cayenne or black pepper
1/2 cup milk cold
1 large egg well-beaten
2 tsp lemon juice

For the brushing butter:
3 Tbsp unsalted butter melted
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp Parmesan cheese
1 tbsp chopped parsley

Instructions

To make the biscuits:
  1. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat. Set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, soda, garlic powder, pepper and salt. Set aside.
  4. In a small measuring cup beat well the egg.
  5. Grab butter and milk from the fridge.
  6. Pour 1/2 c of milk to the cup with egg and stir well. (No need to look for another measuring cup; the beaten egg should measure about 1/4 c so pour enough milk to make 3/4 c liquid.)
  7. Grate the butter straight over the dry ingredients. Cut in with pastry cutter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  8. Add cheddar cheese and stir it in with a wooden spoon.
  9. Add the egg and milk mixture and stir until all is moistened.
  10. Drizzle the lemon juice over the dough and give it a few stirs.
  11. Drop the dough onto prepared baking sheet using a regular size ice cream scoop.
  12. Brush the scooped dough with half of the butter mixture. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until the biscuits just start to brown on top.

To make the brushing butter:
  1. In a small measuring cup, mix together melted butter with garlic powder and Parmesan cheese.
  2. Brush the freshly baked biscuits while they are still hot.
  3. Let cool to room temperature and serve.
