Roasted Garlic Parmesan Biscuits
Makes about 9-11 medium-size biscuits (depending n the size of your cut outs). Bake these ahead of time and freeze them individually for later.
  • 2 cups all purpose flour (plus 1/4 cup for flouring surface)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 cup fresh shredded Parmesan
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar
  • 1 tablespoon dry parsley (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 10 tablespoons cold butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 garlic head
  • 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil (or butter)
  • 1 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Put olive oil in a small frying pan on medium heat. Cut the root ends off of all the cloves of each garlic. (Leave the rest of the skins on.) Simply put the cloves into the pan and cook until all of the cloves loosen away from the skins or has already come out. Take away all of the skins and cut the cloves into smaller pieces. Set aside.
  3. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, onion powder, and grated Parmesan in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Cut the pieces of cold butter and garlic into the flour mixture until all crumbly. (Use a pastry cutter or work the cold butter with both hands into the flour.)
  5. Add the shredded cheeses and coat with the flour/butter mixture.
  6. Add the buttermilk and beaten egg. (I add the beaten egg into the measured buttermilk so it is already together.)
  7. Stir with a spoon until all mixed together.
  8. Do not over mix.
  9. Pat down the dough about 1 inch thick on a lightly floured surface. Dust more flour on top of dough. Cut with a small biscuit cutter or the rim of a glass (dip into some flour to prevent sticking).
  10. Gently lay the biscuits on a baking stone or pan.
  11. bake for 14-16 minutes or until golden brown.
  12. Enjoy!
