Cheddar Garlic Biscuits
Submitted by PJ

2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
1 tsp. Salt
2 tsp. Baking Powder
1 Garlic Clove, Minced
1/2 C. Butter (no substitutes)
1/2 C. Cheddar Cheese
2/3 C. Milk

Mix the flour, salt, baking powder and garlic in a large bowl.
Cut 5 1/2 Tbsp. of the butter in chunks and add it to the flour
mixture and cut it in with a pastry cutter or fork until the
mixture has relatively small pieces of butter throughout. Add the
cheese and mix, then the milk and mix only until combined
(over-working the mixture will lead to tough biscuits). If
mixture is sticky, add a little flour. Shape into biscuits a
couple inches wide and an inch or so tall with your hands and
place on the baking sheet that you roasted the chicken
& vegetables on (don't clean it... the drippings add flavor to
the biscuits). Bake in a 425 degrees F oven for about 12 minutes
until bottoms are golden brown. Melt the remaining 2 1/2 Tbsp.
butter and drizzle over the biscuits. Makes 9-12 biscuits.
