Today my sister Evie is guest posting. Evie is a great cook and she loves spending time in the kitchen. She does not have a blog, so I have convinced her to share several of her favorite recipes with my readers. She has already shared blueberry french toast, her favorite rolls, and her favorite sugar cookies. Today she is sharing cheddar biscuits.
I love bread of all kinds.
Recently, I’ve been making biscuits more often. I find that biscuits are quicker and easier than most loaves of bread or rolls. This copycat recipe is adapted from the Food Network kitchen.
Personally, I’ve never eaten Red Lobster’s Cheddar Bay biscuits, but my husband assures me that these taste very similar. I think they were delicious regardless of their copycat status!
