We were lucky enough to receive a gift card to Lobster Gram, a company that delivers live lobster and other super tasty seafood across the country. I really enjoyed the Lobstergram experience, and I’ll tell you about that soon! We received lobster tails, many many many lobster claws, and some incredible lobster bisque as part of our package. To go along with the bisque, I wanted to make some biscuits – reminded of the Red Lobster biscuits that complement
seafood anything so well.
I’m not much of a baker – that’s Sharon’s expertise – so I’ve never made biscuits before. I could not believe how easy and quick they were to make! They came out moist and rich – just the perfect bite or few to go along with the bisque.
Cheese and Garlic Biscuits
(makes about 10 biscuits)
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
4 tbs butter, at room temperature
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1 cup shredded monterey jack cheese
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 clove garlic, finely minced
Heat oven to 450 degrees. Mix flour, salt, baking powder and butter together. Combine with your hands until the butter is well mixed and the mixture is crumbly. Add the milk and cheese and knead until a dough has formed. Form dough into small balls, approximately 3 inches in diameter, and place on a greased cookie sheet, pressing down to form a biscuit shape. The biscuits will bake for a total of approximately 15 minutes, or until slightly browned.
While the biscuits bake, melt remaining butter and mix with garlic. Pour a teaspoon of butter on each of the biscuits after about 13 minutes of baking, and bake for another 2-3 minutes so the biscuits are shiny and golden.
