Garlic cheese biscuits have always been a family favorite.

Garlic cheese biscuits

These little garlic cheese biscuits just melt in your mouth and go with just about any meal. Slathered with melted butter along with the garlic and cheese, they can’t be beat.  These biscuits are great for a snack anytime.  I can eat these by themselves. You can easily double this recipe if making these for a crowd and they keep well for several days.  I refrigerate and reheat in the microwave.   You might like to check out our recipe for fried catfish fillets to go with these biscuits.

Garlic cheese biscuits are so easy to make!

2  cups self-rising flour
1/4 cup vegetable shortening or butter
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1 cup buttermilk (could use regular milk)
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
Place flour in large bowl.  Cut in shortening or butter until crumbs are the size of peas. Add garlic and sugar.  Stir in cheese and milk.  You can do these as drop biscuits using a tablespoon of batter and dropping onto sprayed baking sheet or you can shape them with your hands and make a larger biscuit.  I did some of both with this batch.  Bake in preheated 450 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes.  Brush tops with the melted butter if you want.  Makes about 18 biscuits. Enjoy.

  2. Mrs. Carol Lee Mentze says:

    Love your site and your recipes sound heavenly!!!!! Looking forward to trying them.

  3. Is self rising flour the same as all purpose flour? Also could I use butter instead of shortening?

  4. Dianne Bobo says:

    if one likes a strong garlic flavor could you use garlic butter on top or would that be to strong?

  5. Could butter be used instead of shortening?

  6. Just for clarification – in the first sentence of your reply to Laura, did you mean to say ‘decrease’ the temp…. ?
    I can’t wait to try this recipe, I have a similar one, but this is even easier. thanks for all of your wonderful recipes.

  7. PICK love your recipes! <3

  8. Hello – I live at 4,300′ and the altitude is a factor. Generally, I have to decrease the cooking temperature a touch and lengthen the cooking time 15 – 25%.

    I was wondering how these would taste with some rye flour included. I guess I need to give it a try.
