Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.

  • Sift flour, baking powder, white sugar, cream of tartar, 1/3 teaspoon garlic powder, and salt together in a large bowl. Mash unsalted butter cubes into the flour mixture with a pastry cutter or large fork until coarsely blended. Mix Cheddar cheese and Italian seasoning into the flour mixture.

  • Pour milk over the flour mixture while stirring until you get a tough and sticky dough. Drop dough by the tablespoon onto the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in preheated oven until lightly browned, about 15 minutes.

  • Stir melted salted butter, parsley flakes, and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder together in a bowl; brush over biscuits immediately upon removing from the oven.

Cook's Note:

For slightly crispier tops, put back in the oven for two minutes after brushing.

After a fairly disappointing experience recently with another similar biscuit recipe this one was a wonderful reward. Whereas the previous biscuits were too heavy on the garlic and cheese these gratefully had neither of those issues. I did however skip the "Italian" seasoning which I am not a fan of. In its place I substituted fresh chopped dill. These baked up fluffy and plump nice flavors none overbearing. Read More

Not bad but flat tasting and a little greasy. Made exactly as directed except used 2% milk instead of whole. Read More

My Mom used to bake biscuits like these when I was a child. Today was gloomy and cold so we cooked up some ham and potato soup and baked these biscuits per recipe but with slightly different seasoning. Fresh rosemary was used in place of the Italian seasoning. The biscuits were fluffy full of flavor and a delicious compliment to soup. We will be making these again soon! Read More

These were okay but not nearly as good or as easy to make as the Cheddar Biscuits on this site. Won't be baking these again. Read More

These were tasty! Might cut back slightly on the Italian seasoning next time though. Served these with home made chicken noodle soup for dinner. Kids gobbled them up. Read More

Ohhhhh my goodness! I baked this with minestrone soup and it sure was a hit with everyone! I prefer to slather on the butter coating, so I'll double the ratio of that to the dough recipe. Also add a pinch of salt to the butter sauce to make it savory and salty on the pallet too :) Read More

These were good I cooked them only 10 minutes and they were perfect. I made them using a tablespoon so the biscuits were small which I liked. Read More
