I have a confession to make. When I saw these cheddar and parsley biscuits on Jen’s blog a few months ago, I made them immediately. And I kept making them. In fact, I made them pretty much every time we had soup or chili…which, as the weather turned colder and colder, was a lot. In fact, I think at this point I’m hopelessly addicted to them. They’re so easy to make that I can’t help adding them to the table with just about any fall meal – including Thanksgiving dinner! Just be sure to make them immediately, because I’m telling you, they are that good. If you’re looking for another great side to add to your Thanksgiving table this Thursday, give these a try; your guests will be sure to thank you.

Recipe very slightly adapted from here.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/3 cup cold butter, cut into pieces
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 2/3 cup milk
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 2 tsp dried parsley
- 1 clove minced garlic
- 2 Tbsp butter, melted
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Use a pastry blender to work in the butter.
Stir in the cheese, milk, egg, garlic powder, parsley, and minced garlic.
Using a spoon, drop the dough on to the prepared baking sheet.
Place in the oven and bake 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and brush the melted butter over the biscuits. Return to the oven to bake 5 minutes longer. Serve warm.
