9 biscuits


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder (such as MAGIC®)

  • ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar

  • ¼ teaspoon white sugar

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ cup cold butter, cut into cubes

  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (such as Kraft® Double Cheddar)

  • cup milk

  • 2 tablespoons milk

  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise

  • 1 tablespoon parsley

  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).

  2. Mix flour, baking powder, cream of tartar, sugar, and salt together in a bowl; cut in butter using a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir Cheddar cheese into flour mixture; add 1/3 plus 2 tablespoons milk, mayonnaise, parsley, and garlic powder and mix until a soft dough forms.

  3. Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, 8 to 10 times. Pat dough into a 6-inch square and cut into 9 smaller squares. Arrange squares 2-inches apart on a baking sheet.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes.
