Cheddar Cheese Biscuits Like Ruby Tuesday's

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by DAR Lady

This is a scratch recipe, adapted from Food and Wine, that is a dead ringer for the ones I enjoy at Ruby Tuesday's. I like it because it uses plain flour instead of Bisquick.

I've never had Ruby Tuesday's biscuits so I can't comment on the similarity to those...but as a cheddar cheese biscuit these are fantastic. They are flaky and full of flavour, and are easy to whip up. I like that they don't call for Bisquick, an ingredient that isn't available where I live. I made about 10 large biscuits and cooked them a bit longer than suggested because they were so thick. These were great fresh from the oven and also cold the next day. Thanks for the great recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and garlic powder.
  2. Add the cubed butter. Using a pastry cutter or a fork, cut butter into flour until it is coarse, pea-sized.
  3. Add oil, grated cheddar cheese and the milk. Stir till well combined and holds together.
  4. Make sure to keep adding milk a bit at a time, just until the dough is moistened and you can no longer see any raw flour.
  5. Drop approximately 1/4 cup portions of the dough onto an un-greased cookie sheet or a using an ice cream scoop or large spoon.
  6. Bake for 15-17 minutes in a preheated oven at 400 degrees.
  7. While biscuits are baking, melt 3 tablespoons butter is a small bowl with 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and the parsley.
  8. When biscuits come out of the oven, use a brush to spread this garlic butter over the tops of all the biscuits. Do this a few times – it’s fun to watch all the butter getting absorbed into the biscuit! Use up all of the butter. Serve warm.
