What is the one thing you hope to taste when visiting the South? For me – Delicious, buttery, flaky, and maybe a bit fatty……good ol’ fashioned biscuits.
To eat a true biscuit in the South, you really need A LOT of butter, and some buttermilk to make them complete. So this recipe will not work in a healthy form…..just enjoy one at a time…..MAYBE two if it is a splurge day!
Since I still need to get a fun biscuit cutter for my next fun kitchen gadget, I used a large scoop. I think my list of kitchen gadgets is getting out of control. I may need a second kitchen soon….
Do you have a crush on a famous chef? I definitely do!!! Watching Bobby Flay’s shows, interviews, and reality shows on FoodNetwork- he is truly a kind soul, who is passionate about food.
Hubby and I are hooked on his new show Barbeque Addiction on FoodNetwork. When you watch Chef Flay on BBQ Addiction, he is totally himself, and makes you giggle. I guess when you get to do what you love, and share it with others, it would be more than just work!
The recipe I share today is adapted from Chef Bobby Flay. I have seen him make biscuits many times, and love his recipes. The recipe I adapted is from his Black Pepper Biscuit recipe.
Buttery biscuit full of garlic and cheese in every bite!

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Grease baking sheet with cooking spray.
In kitchenaid mixer - mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt on slow speed, and for only a couple turns to mix ingredients. Then mix in cubed butter and mix on slow speed until it is incorporated into the flour, let it mix in until the flour looks like coarse meal. Next, add in half and half until batter comes together and is slightly loose. Add in scallions, garlic, and cheese.
Scoop out batter onto sheet pan, bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown, depending on oven, and how big you make the biscuits. The batter makes 11 large biscuits.
I did not have buttermilk, so I used half and half instead. You could definitely use buttermilk instead for this recipe.
No really do you have a crush on a famous chef, time to fess up here and now!
