The Best Cheese Biscuits

We had tried the cheese biscuits at Ruby Tuesdays, but they were too sweet. So I went looking for  a recipe and found one pretty close. So I did a little adjusting and we all LOVED the result. We said this was IT. Not too sweet, but delicious.

2 c plain  flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1   tsp. garlic salt
1-1/2  tsp. chives
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/3 cup cold butter, cut into chunks
2 TBS canola  oil
1 heaping cup  grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 – 2/3 c  milk

For brushing on top:
6  TBS  butter
1  tsp. garlic powder
1  tsp. dried parsley flakes

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, garlic salt, sugar, chives and garlic powder.
Add the cubed butter. Using a pastry cutter or a fork, cut butter into flour until it is coarse, pea-sized.
Add oil, grated cheddar cheese and enough milk to make a stiff batter. Stir till well combined and holds together.
Make sure to keep adding milk a bit at a time, just until the dough is moistened and you can no longer see any raw flour.
Drop  onto an un-greased cookie sheet.
Bake for 15-17 minutes in a preheated oven at 400. This depends on how big you make them. I made mine smaller and baked them for 11 minutes.
While biscuits are baking, melt butter is a small bowl with  garlic powder and the parsley.
When biscuits come out of the oven, use a brush to spread this garlic butter over the tops of all the biscuits. Do this a couple of  times.


  1. I've never been to a Ruby Tuesdays before but boy do these look good.

  2. Oh I love the, thanks for sharing with all, hugs my dear friend..
