  • 2 1/3 cups all purpose flour, measured then sifted
  • 1 ½ Tbsps granulated sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp cream of tartar
  • 2 Tbsp baking powder
  • 12 Tbsps unsalted butter cold (1 ½ sticks)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup buttermilk

herb butter topping-


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a large 21”x15” baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Cube butter and place in the freezer while you prep and measure remaining ingredients.
  • In a large bowl, combine sifted flour, sugar, salt, garlic powder, baking powder and cream of tartar.
  • Mix in the butter with the flour ingredients until crumbly. Don't overbeat.
  • Add in the shredded cheese and combine.
  • Create a well in the center and pour in the buttermilk and mix just until incorporated.
  • Lightly dust the workspace with flour and add the batter to the floured surface. Shape into a rectangle then fold one side into the center and repeat with the other side.
  • With a rolling pin, roll out the dough to about a 5”x10” rectangle. With a biscuit mold, make 10 biscuits and then with the extra dough, create the last 2 biscuits.
  • Carefully transfer biscuits to the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake at 400°F for 10-15 minutes, or until golden.
  • Combine the butter, garlic and parsley for the herb butter and melt in a saucepan or microwave.
  • Once cooked, remove from the oven and brush the tops with melted herb butter. Enjoy!
