A few months back I was going through a really old family recipe book and came across a couple of recipes for biscuits and found this recipe for Easy Cheddar Cheese Biscuits.
Now if you are like me, when you are in the mood for biscuits you probably just pick up a few cans of and pop them in the oven. I mean why not? It’s quick and easy and just about anybody can make biscuits from a can. But what fun is that?
Every now and then it’s fun to make something from scratch that you would normally buy pre-made. And that’s where this recipe comes in.
A handful of ingredients and no more than 30 minutes of your time and voila! Homemade Cheesy Biscuits! And don't forget to try my Homemade Buttery Biscuits, my Copycat KFC Biscuits or my Sour Cream Biscuit recipe. So easy to make and delicious.
