  • 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.
  • ou 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
