Cheddar Biscuits

There is something about cheese appetizers that always attract me like a magnet. The baked cheese is always soo good, and enrich every dish with it’s unique flavor. A friend of mine told me about these amazing cheddar biscuits and since then I’ve been eager to try them out as I was sure I will love them. What not to like: buttery, flaky, garlicky and cheesy biscuits… one of the best combinations ever and they do look really appetizing as well.

I added some grated cheese on top of each, as while baking it forms a really crusty flavorful top and the interior remains soft and fluffy. Really loved the extra garlic butter mixture on top, it really enhances all the flavors. I’ve made these cheddar biscuits for a couple of times now and every time they were finished before having time to cool 🙂 They are best served right after you take them out of the oven, really love the steam that comes out when you break in smaller pieces … it is indeed a wonderful appetizer. For me they can easily make a meal if served alongside a fresh salad.

What I love the most is that they are really quick, are done in a matter of minutes, with ingredients you always have on hand. If you don’t have buttermilk you can always substitute with some yogurt and milk, try different type of cheese, and so on, just give these cheddar biscuits a try and see how delicious they are.

      I am so glad you enjoyed them:)  let me know if you try any of the other recipes

  16. Carole Author says:

    You say 2 cups of flour which is 500 grams, not 250. I am making them right now with 1 cup of flour, so I hope they turn out alright! I have made your Nutella cheesecake (TWICE!) and many of your other recipes. We love them!

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      The cup I am referring is the one used in US measurements and a cup has a capacity of 240 ml. If you fill it with flour over a kitchen scale you will see it has only 125 g of flour. I am so glad to hear you tried the Nutella Cheesecake and enjoyed it:) hope the biscuits turned good for you as well:)

    Dear Ella,

    I wouls like to make them ahead, I am wondering whether they can be backed and reheated after defrosted. If so, tell me the oven temperature and if they are still so good as fresh baked 🙂 I need a huge badge for 14 people who are coming home for Christmas.

    1. Ella-HomeCookingAdventure Author says:

      Hello Silvia.

      Yes, you can reheat after defrosting, at 400 F (200 C), for few minutes. They should be just as good.
