I have been craving a cheese biscuit for the longest time...and one with garlic in it, what more could I hope for!!! I'm sorry, but this receipe was a huge disappointment!!! The receipe itself was super easy to follow, but my biscuits didn't turn out anything like what anyone else has said. My biscuit didn't rise at all, were extremely dense, and the middle still seemed uncooked - despite baking them for almost 40 minutes, I was very careful not to use too much flour, as I didn't want them to be dry, but yet flour was all I could taste!!! This receipe was a huge fail for me, and I'm sad to say that the best part of them was throwing them out!!!
Hi, Evelyn. I tried your recipe this morning, and it was great. I was unsure about the mayo -- I'd never put it in biscuits before, but I followed the recipe anyway. I realized halfway through that I was out of garlic, so I just used some garlic powder, and a little onion as an after thought as I remembered the comment about chives. The batter was a little runny, so I restrained myself from adding too much extra flour when I remembered your advice about them being hard, even against my healthy paranoia. They turned out great. The garlic for me was a little understated, but I did have to substitute the powder. Next time I'll use the real thing, or a little more. They had a great, deep, almost tangy flavour that comes out a second or two after you bite into them unlike other biscuits I've mad. I'll attribute that to the mayo, I think. Thanks again for the recipe. I'll be replacing my old cheese and garlic biscuit recipe with yours.
These were great!They didn't rise really high, but had a moistness and a very slight chewiness(from the baked cheese on the bottom).I also used baking powder in these with bread flour.Really good-thanks for the recipe!!
I wish you could've been here for breakfast w/us today, Evelyn. You would've been so proud. I followed your recipe 100%, adding only fresh chives. They were just heavenly - nicely browned, light, so full of flavor & the aroma was TDF! I made them as muffins & coated the tops w/butter using my pastry brush. These are great & we both loved them! Thx for posting.
These were very good biscuits. I didn't have to use but a little extra flour in these. Dough came out very nice and easy to work with. I'm not sure I liked the mayo in these.
Ev, this the best recipe I have used for garlic cheddar biscuits which I love. Did not have self rising flour, so I added 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 tablespoon baking powder and it worked very well. I can't wait to make these again. Sooooo good! Thanks so much for sharing this great recipe which I will definitely add to my favorites.
These are quite good, I have never added in mayo to a biscuit recipe, I would have liked them to rise a little more than they did, but the taste wonderful! thanks Ev!...Kitten:)
I really enjoyed these biscuits with a little mayonnaise on them! I didn't have self rising flour so used a recipe here on Zaar for them. Thank you Evelyn!
