- 1 Tablespoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup shortening (margarine, lard or butter)
- ½ to ¾ cup milk
To prepare biscuit dough, follow these steps:
- In a mixing bowl combine the dry ingredients.
- Use a fork or pastry blender to cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles bread crumbs
- Add the milk a little at a time until the dough is soft but not sticky. (You might not need all the milk.)
- Roll the dough out one inch thick and cut into rounds.

Garlic cheese biscuits can be frozen after cooking and reheated. To warm them up, be sure to thoroughly thaw at room temperature first. Then warm at 300°F for 10 minutes. They will keep in the freezer for up to three months or in the refrigerator for several days.
