PaperCrafts Gourmet - Cheesy Garlic Drop Biscuits

Have you seen the latest issue of PC Gourmet? There's some cute projects and recipes in this book. I followed Alisa Bangerter's recipe for Cheesy Garlic Drop Biscuits - they were a hit with my family!

Here's Alisa's project and recipe - be sure to scroll down - as I was inspired by her project to create one of my own.

Cheesy Garlic Drop Biscuits by Alisa Bangerter

This is a perfect recipe to pull out if you are short on time because there is no rolling or cutting. The cheese and garlic add extra kick to a plain biscuit, and kids love them. They are the perfect accompaniment to serve with soups or stews, and are great served with a salad.




INGREDIENTS

2 c. flour

2 tbsp. granulated sugar

4 tsp. baking powder

1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. salt

2/3 c. butter or margarine

1-1/2 c. grated cheddar cheese

1-1/4 c. milk

Chives (optional)


DIRECTIONS

Sprinkle top with chopped dried or fresh chives if desired. Bake at 400 degrees for approx. 15 minutes.

Here's my project...I followed Alisa's recipe and placed my dry ingredients in a ziplock bag and placed it in my tin, along with a copy of the recipe. I then covered my tin with some DSP using sticky strip to hold it securely in place. The tag on my tin was made with the JustRite Baking Ensemble - cutting my circles with my Nesties. The Baking Ensemble from JustRite, has great unchangeable centers and borders - perfect for your baking related craft projects! Be sure to check back on Wednesday - I've got another great Gift Idea to share with you using the Baking Ensemble and some tips too, using JustRite Stampers!
