The wonderful flavors of garlic and parmesan mingle together in heavenly flaky biscuits creating the perfect accompaniment to any Italian meal.
2 c. flour
1 T. Baking Powder
1 tsp salt
1 T. Sugar
1/4 c. Shortening
3/4 c. Milk
1 T. Minced Garlic (or 3 cloves finely minced)
1 T. Fresh Chopped Parsley (or 1 tsp Dried)
1/3 c. melted butter
1/3 c. Parmesan cheese, grated
In a mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Cut in shortening, add milk until it forms a soft dough. Do not overmix or the biscuits will be tough.
Roll the dough on a floured surface. In a small bowl mix butter, garlic & parsley. Spread the mix over the dough (the back of a spoon works great!), sprinkle generously with parmesan cheese.
Roll lengthwise into a log and slice in 1″ pieces. Place them on an un-greased cookie sheet, sides touching slightly. Bake at 425F for 8-12 minutes or until golden brown.
These can be made with bisquick mix to make them easier, or you can make your own Quick mix.
