Do you love cooking as well as paper crafting. I don’t know about you but these cold Fall days just beg for yummy home-cooked meals and after a very busy summer, I’ve been pulling out my recipes and baking more too! I’m really excited about this new special publication by Paper crafts called PC Gourmet. I’ve seen a sneak peek at a few of the recipes as I have a few designs coming out in this issue. Today though…I have a couple great things to share with you! Paper Crafts has send me two copies of this magazine, one of them to share with you. Since I’ll already be getting my own copies, I thought it would be even better to give them both away for you to enjoy! 🙂 If you’re looking for copies of this great magazine (they’d make some great Christmas gifts) you can purchase them on-line here. Fpr a chance to win, simply respond to this post by Friday October 31st at 10 pm EST. If you like, tell me what you’re crafting or cooking up these days! Please enter only once. I’ll be posting the two random winners on Saturday.
I also have a great recipe and project to share with you today designed by Alisa Bangerter. Enjoy!
Cheesy Garlic Drop Biscuits
by 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
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.
