Some Yummy Goodness

I have some yummy goodness... both the visual and the physical. Well, it will be visual until you actually make this for yourself. The first bit of yumminess comes from Papercrafts Magazine. The special publication is called PC Gourmet, and it's filled with recipes from soups and appetizers to main dishes and everything in between. This will make a wonderful Christmas gift for your papercraft buddy - so order before they are gone!

A little tidbit for you - I'm a contributor to this book and my absolutely fantastically wonderful recipe for Louisiana Gumbo is in this book. I can say that because my sisters were over for Christmas last year, and they didn't think I can cook. Well, who was asking who for the gumbo recipe??? You will WANT this book.

So today I'm happy to share a recipe with you! This recipe comes from Papercrafts Pro Alisa Bangerter.

Cheesy Garlic Drop Biscuits
Alisa Bangerter

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.


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)


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.

To accompany this recipe, Alisa has made this adorable project. I've included the supply list and instructions so you can make this, too. Just in time for Halloween!
