Herb and Cheese Biscuits

This was a simple, plain biscuit recipe that I decided to spice up. I could see the hesitation on my husband as he watched me chop basil and roast garlic, but there was no hesitation in eating the finished product. These would be delicious with dinner, but today I used them to put a kick in breakfast.

What you need:

2 Cups Self-Rising Flour
1/2 Cup No-Trans Fat Butter or Margarine
3/4 Cup Milk
1 Cup Cheddar Cheese
1/3 Cup Fresh Basil (Chopped)
3-5 Cloves Roasted Garlic

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. When oven is preheated, roast the garlic for 5-10 minutes until soft.

Place flour into a large mixing bowl and cut in butter with a fork and mix until flour is crumbly. Mix in cheese, basil and garlic (mince garlic before mixing). Stir in mik a little at a time until the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl. Place some flour on a flat surface and fold dough until it is no longer sticky. You may need extra flour for folding. When dough is no longer sticky, pat it down and cut with a biscuit cutter or roll into balls. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
