Cheese Biscuit Mashup
Mashup of Allrecipe's Cheese Drop Biscuits and Nick Malgieri's Pecorino and Pepper Biscuits (found in The Modern Baker)
Yield ~ 12
2 3/4 c flour
1 Tblsp baking powder
1 tsp garlic salt
dash of garlic powder (optional)
1 stick cold butter, cut into 12 pieces
3/4 c milk
3/4 c (70g) shredded cheddar cheese
preheat oven to 400 degrees
Put flour, baking powder, garlic salt and garlic powder in food processor, pulse a few times to mix.
Add cold butter pieces, pulse several times to avoid large lumps.
Add milk and cheese, pulse a few times to combine but not form a ball. May need to add a bit of water to get it to come together.
Grease a baking sheet, drop roughly formed biscuits about 1" apart.
Bake 12-15 minutes, until tops start to brown.
