Cheddar Basil Biscuits

So the other day I was playing around in the kitchen and started making biscuits. I LOVE BISCUITS!! My mother taught me how to bake at a very early age. I’ve gotten really good at it. Usually, I don’t even use a recipe. Lots of freestyling goes on in my kitchen. I started adding herbs, then I threw in some cheddar cheese. They were so good. I just needed to tweak the recipe some more to give it a little something extra! So yesterday before leaving to go to the park I made another batch of biscuits. And they came out perfect! They were buttery, cheesy, and everything you want from a savory biscuit. You want this biscuit in your life!

Cheddar Basil Biscuits

makes 12 biscuits

preheat 350


2 cups bread flour

1 1/2 tbsp baking powder

1/2 tsp basil 

1/2 tsp garlic salt

1/4 tsp black pepper 

1 cup unsalted whipped butter

1 cup sour cream milk ( mix 1/3 cup sour cream with 1 cup water)

1/2 cup cheddar cheese 


In a large bowl, mix bread flour, baking powder, basil, garlic salt, black pepper.

Mix in butter with fingers until crumbly.

Add milk and mix until it forms a ball of dough.

Turn onto floured surface all roll out until it’s about a inch and half thick. 

Cut out biscuits. I always use a plastic cup but you can use a biscuit cutter if you have one. 

Put biscuits in a hot buttered cast iron skillet. 

Bake 350 for 20 minutes.

Eat & Enjoy!
