If I could have one thing for the rest of my life it would be these biscuits. They are tender and fluffy on the inside, with a slight crunch on the outside. Super cheesy, these biscuits melt in your mouth and are loaded with tons of garlic flavor. They taste like Red Lobsters Biscuits only better!

They are incredibly easy to make and taste amazing. In fact these cheese and garlic biscuits can be made in less than 30 minutes! All you need for this garlic cheese biscuit recipe is a food processor that’s it! No bowls, stand mixer, pastry cutter, or biscuit cutter required! These biscuits are actually too easy to make that they are dangerous. They make the perfect side dish to pretty much any dinner and come together in no time.

The biscuits come out of the oven perfectly golden brown on the outside. Once they come out of the oven I brush them with a homemade garlic herb butter. If you love garlic you will love these biscuits!

There is no rolling or mixer required for this recipe. Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup simply scoop out the batter and plop it onto a baking sheet with a silicon baking mat or parchment. (If you have trouble getting the batter out of the measuring cup simply spray with some non-stick cooking spray).

This recipe makes 7-8 pretty good sized muffins. This recipe can easily be doubled. freezer friendly

Ingredients Overview

  • Butter: Cold unsalted butter is added to the biscuits for an ultra rich buttery flavor. We tried both melted butter and cold cubed butter and like how the cold butter provided flakey layers compared to the greasiness of the melted butter. You can substitute salted butter in this recipe just omit the added salt.
  • Cheddar cheese: We used shredded sharp cheddar cheese to make these biscuits super cheesy and flavorful. You can also substitute havarti or Monterey jack cheese.
  • Flour: All purpose flour is used.
  • Baking powder: Give the homemade biscuits their needed lift. 
  • Garlic powder: Adds a subtle hint of garlic to the biscuits.
  • Homemade buttermilk: Milk (we used 2%) and lemon juice are mixed together to create a homemade buttermilk. So much easier than remembering to buy buttermilk at the store.

Storage and Freezing Instructions

Storage Instructions: Store leftover easy garlic cheese biscuits in an airtight container at room temperature for up to __ days.

Freeze: Biscuits in a ziplock bag for up to 3 months! To reheat simply bring to room temperature on the counter or microwave until warm. For best results I recommend rewarming in the toaster oven.

How to make Garlic Cheese Biscuits

  • Preheat oven: To 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Make homemade buttermilk: Stir milk and lemon juice together in a small bowl. Sit for 5-10 minutes or until milk begins to curdle.
  • Make biscuit dough: Add flour, baking powder, salt, garlic powder, shredded cheddar cheese and butter to a food processor fitted with the blade attachment. Pulse for 5 seconds or until the mixture looks like loose crumbs. Pour in milk mixture and pulse for another 5 seconds.
  • Bake: Scoop 1/4 cup of the batter onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.
  • Brush with garlic butter: As soon as the biscuits come out of the oven drizzle with garlic herb butter. Serve immediately and enjoy!

To make the garlic butter simply combine all three ingredients together in a small bowl. Set aside until ready to use.

Tips for making the BEST Drop Biscuits

  • Try not to over work your batter. This will result in a tougher biscuit.
  • I make my own buttermilk using fresh squeezed lemon juice and milk. It is so much better and cheaper than buying store bought buttermilk.
  • Using cold butter instead of melted butter creates a tall flakey biscuit.
  • Add bacon, chopped ham or scallions to these cheddar biscuits for a pop of flavor!
  • For perfectly portioned biscuits scoop biscuits out using a 1/4 cup measuring scoop or use a 1/4 cup ice cream scoop (we like this one!)
