I keep a handy box of Bisquick for making pancakes. Recently I made cheese biscuits/scones from the recipe on the box and the boys liked them . On my second try, I changed the recipe just a little bit and I think it's good enough to share with you.
Eat them warm. Add a soup, some sausages too. Mmmm... Guess this is not something you should eat often ...
p.s the Americans, just to be different, call scones 'biscuits' and 'shortbread'.
Cheese Garlic Biscuits
2 cups Bisquick mix
2 T cold butter, diced
2/3 cup fresh milk
1/2 cup grated Cheddar cheese
1/4 t garlic powder
2 T butter
1/2 t garlic powder
1 t dried parsley
1. Oven at 200 C. Using a pastry cutter, mix the flour with the butter but don't cut it too fine. Add the garlic powder, then the milk, stirring well with a fork or your fingers and then knead quickly (less than 10 times) and lightly till it all comes together. Do not overmix.
2. Scoop (you'll need to ease dough off and kinda pat them into shape) by tablespoonful onto an ungreased baking tray (I went against it the first time and greased the tray. The bottom of the biscuits burnt). Bake 15 minutes or till top is lightly golden.
3. While biscuits are baking, melt the butter and mix the other ingredients in. When biscuits are out of the oven, brush the tops with the melted butter mix. Serve hot.
