Even more funny is that while I was trying to take her pictures in this outfit, but my grandmama called from West Virginia about a recipe exchange email I sent her. She was concerned that the way the exchange worked, not many people would get her Garlic Cheese Biscuit recipe so I assured her I'd post it here for all the world to see! She's a great cook, so I can guarantee that these will be delicious.
Bernice's (not Berneese) Garlic Cheese Biscuits
Melt about 1/3 c of Margarine with 1-2tsp of Garlic Powder
2 c Biscuit Mix (she uses Jiffy Baking Mix )
About 2/3 c - 1 c Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
Dash of Garlic Powder
Enough Buttermilk to wet the dry ingredients (about 1 c)
Drop by Teaspoonsful onto greased cookie sheet, an inch or 2 apart. Bake at 400 until brown (10 - 12 Minutes). Using a pastry brush, brush the top of biscuits with the Butter/Garlic mixture as soon as removed from oven.
PS - Sometimes she even adds shredded pepperoni to the biscuits.
A note about my grandmama - - I'm not sure she measures anything precisely. Once when I was making a frozen pizza at her house, I pulled the pizza out of its wrapper and put it on a pan to put in the oven and she looked at me like I was crazy and said "Aren't you going to add more cheese and pepperoni to that?" She's the queen of doctoring packaged foods to her taste. My brother who wouldn't touch a vegetable other than spinach as a teenager convinced her once that pizza is a balanced, nutritious meal.
Maybe one day she'll let me share her Chicken and Dumplings recipe with you.
