Cheesy Biscuits

I have made these before with Bisquick, but the other day I was out of Bisquick. So I found a recipe for drop biscuits in my Betty Crocker Cookbook and added a handful of grated cheese. All the kids liked them and so did Fax. And they were better than the Bisquick version. Not quite as easy, but pretty close.


2 cups flour
1 TBSP baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup butter-flavored Crisco
1 cup milk
1 big handful of grated cheese (about a cup)


Preheat oven to 450 F. Mix together dry ingredients. Cut in the Crisco. (I just used a fork, and then made sure it was well mixed in with my hands.) Add the milk and stir just until moist. Add grated cheese and stir just until combined. Drop on sheet pan lined with parchment paper. You can make these as big or small as you want. I usually divide the dough into 10 biscuits. When you make them this big it takes about 12 minutes to cook them. So, obviously, if they're smaller, less time; if they're bigger, more time.

Now they just need some garlic butter on top and I'll bet they're as good as Red Lobsters Cheddar Bay Biscuits!

I think you could even put some garlic powder in the dough. Red Lobster isn't my favorite because I'm not a fan of seafood, so I've never tasted their biscuits. But I agree that garlic would definitely taste good in them!
