These golden, flaky biscuits have a lovely roasted garlic flavor and lots of cheddar cheese. Ready in minutes and so much better than boxed biscuits!

Total Time 1hour5minutes
1small head of garlictop cut off
4-1/2cupswhite whole wheat flour
1cupshredded cheddar cheese
Place garlic in a small baking dish and drizzle with olive oil. Cover with foil and bake at 400F 35-40 minutes, or until garlic is soft. Cool slightly then finely chop. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Using a pastry cutter, or your fingers, work in cold butter, shredded cheese, and chopped roasted garlic until crumbly. Pour buttermilk over all and gently stir until a shaggy clump of dough forms.
Turn dough onto a floured surface and gently knead until dough is smooth. Pat dough into a 3/4 in circle. Using a biscuit cutter, cut out biscuit shapes and place on parchment paper-lined baking sheets.
Bake biscuits at 400F 15-18 minutes, or until lightly golden. Cool on wire cooling racks.
Store biscuits in an airtight container at room temperature up to 3 days.
