These little 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.
2 1/2 cups self-rising flour
1/4 cup vegetable shortening
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1 1/4 cups buttermilk (could use regular milk)
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
Place flour in large bowl. Cut in shortening 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 just to show you. Bake in preheated 450 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Brush tops with the melted butter.
