Weekend Cooking: Cheesy Garlic Biscuits

11 May 2014

When I was younger, the word ‘biscuit’ would bring to mind crunchy, sweet discs, some with nuts and some with chocolate chips, basically what we also call ‘cookies.’  The first time I ate a fluffy, buttery biscuit was when I was in the States, when Jeanny took me to Popeyes for the first time.  When Popeyes arrived in Malaysia I was thrilled, but the biscuits they served were not as I remembered.  Then came Texas Chicken, which served perfect, fluffy, absolutely delicious glazed biscuits, and life was good.

However, I still crave for a nice, savory type of fluffy biscuit, which led to me trying out this recipe 365 Days of Baking.  They turned out great, and I served them together with the Popcorn Chicken I made.  Try it out!
