Italian Cheese and Herb Biscuits

This is the basic biscuit base that I use for my cheese garlic biscuits. I was out of cheddar cheese so I was force to modify and invent something new. This is the result.

2 cups all purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
1/3 cup unsalted butter
1 cup shredded Italian cheese blend
1 cup milk
  1. Preheat oven to 425°.
  2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, garlic powder, oregano, basil and parsley. Cut in the butter using a pastry cutter or a couple of forks until the dough looks pebbly. Add the cheese and milk, stirring to combine.
  3. Drop biscuits onto baking sheet or pat them into a biscuit shape (like those pictured above).
  4. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown on top. If desired melt some additional butter and bush it over the top of the biscuits when they come out of the oven.
