The Best Biscuits Ever
The Best Biscuits Ever

These are seriously the BEST biscuits ever! I make these all the time!

I heard this rumor that a certain large seafood chain brushes parsley, garlic and melted butter on top of their biscuits, which make them absolutely addicting.

So I tried it.

And shouldn’t have.

I wanted to just eat these alone for supper, without the Cornish Game Hen Soup that I served them with.

Salty, garlicky, cheesy goodness.

Ingredients Needed:

Biscuits:
2 cups of flour
1 tbs baking powder
1/2 cup of butter
1/2 tsp of salt
1 cup of cheese
2/3 milk

Butter Topping:
2 tbs butter
1/2 tsp parsley
1/2 tsp garlic powder

Kick the tires and light the fires to 425 degrees.

Biscuits

Combine all the dry ingredients well, take a whisk to them or sift. Then cut in the butter until the mixture is coarse crumbs.

Biscuits

Melt the butter for the topping in the microwave with the garlic and parsley. I melted it together to soften up the parsley a bit.

Biscuits

Once the butter is cut in, pour the milk in, add the cheese and combine.

Biscuits

Roll the dough out until it’s about 1/2 – 3/4 inch thick, then use either a biscuit cutter, or a glass to cut out the biscuits.

Using your pastry brush, brush copious amounts of the butter sauce on the top of the biscuits and pop into the oven.

The Best Biscuits Ever! Garlicky goodness that is so easy to make!!!

Bake for 10-15 minutes until they have risen and are  starting to brown on top.

And beware, know that everyone that eats them will fall in love with you. Serve them wisely.

Just like the garlic cheese biscuits at your local seafood chain but better hot and fresh from your oven!

    Karlynn, you said this serves 4, how many biscuits do you consider a serving? Does this recipe make 8, 10 or a dozen biscuits, please?5 stars

    • Karlynn says

      This makes a solid 12. Some of these old recipes need fixing as the recipe card has screwed some of them up, this would be one of them! Thanks for catching that!5 stars

  2. JeannieLeBlancWilliams says

    To die for…these turned out amazing.

  3. Mindy Tindall says

    Yum! I make a similar biscuit, but with dill.

  4. Rachel says

    Thanks for the response! Making them tonight to have with dinner! Thanks for the recipe!

  5. Karlynn says

    I actually only had marble cheese on hand, and they were still amazing even though it is a mild cheese. Medium would be the best for most tastes but I imagine old like Katia above used would be fantastic too! I would use a medium cheddar to start.

  6. Rachel says

    What type of cheese do you use? You never said in the recipe. So excited to make these this weekend!

  7. Katia says

    I made them yesterday with old cheddar and it was awesome !! Those are REALLY the best biscuits ever !

    • Karlynn says

      Thanks, it’s always good to know I am not losing my mind and that they DO taste that good lol! Glad you liked them!
