food + papercrafts = yummy inspirations

Check this new book out!!! Totally my type of inspiration. Now I'm not in this book (how I wish) but bec. they're from one of my fave magazines, I simply had to endorse it.


And bec. our dear editors from PaperCrafts magazine is so nice to my blog readers (all 20 of you, LOL just kidding) here's a delish recipe and a great project just for you brought to you by the very talented Alisa Bangerter.

Cheesy Garlic Drop Biscuits

This is a perfect recipe to pull out if you are short on time because there is no rolling or cutting. The cheese and garlic add extra kick to a plain biscuit, and kids love them. They are the perfect accompaniment to serve with soups or stews, and are great served with a salad.

INGREDIENTS

2 c. flour

2 tbsp. granulated sugar

4 tsp. baking powder

1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. salt

2/3 c. butter or margarine

1 1/2 c. grated cheddar cheese

1 1/4 c. milk

Chives (optional)

DIRECTIONS

Mix together dry ingredients. Cut in butter with pastry cutter until mixture is fine. Add cheese and mix well. Add milk and stir until just moistened. Drop by spoonfuls onto greased baking sheet. Sprinkle top with chopped dried or fresh chives if desired. Bake at 400 degrees for approx. 15 minutes.
