Cheddar Garlic Biscuits

2 cups Bisquick or other butter-milk baking mix
2/3 cup milk
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

With a wooden spoon, mix baking mix, milk and cheese until a soft dough forms. Beat vigorously for 30 seconds.

Drop dough by heaping tablespoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Combine melted butter and garlic powder -- brush over warm biscuits before removing from cookie sheet. Serve warm.

Makes 10 to 12 biscuits.


Roasted Garlic Biscuits:
5 cups baking or buttermilk biscuit mix
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
14 1/2-ounce can Swanson seasoned chicken broth with roasted garlic

Mix baking mix, cheese and broth to form a soft dough. Drop by spoonfuls (we used a tablespoon) onto ungreased baking sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. Makes about 24 biscuits.

Garlic Spread and Cheddar Biscuits:
1 1/4 pounds Bisquick or other baking mix
3 ounces shredded cheddar cheese 11 ounces cold water

Garlic spread:
1/2 cup melted butter
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon dried parsley

Place cold water in a medium bowl -- add Bisquick and cheese. Mix until dough is firm. Drop biscuits on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. While biscuits bake, combine spread ingredients. Brush baked biscuits with the garlic topping.

This recipe is slightly different from the first.
Follow the first recipe but increase the butter to 1/2 cup and divide butter (4 tablespoons each). Add 4 tablespoons to batter. Use the remaining butter to brush over baked biscuits.
