When Patti Dierks mixes up baking powder biscuits, she includes some grated cheese and garlic salt. The Frederic, Wisconsin cook says the biscuits are perfect with just about any main dish, soup or salad.
"I USUALLY used a glass or baking powder can lid as a cutter so the biscuits would be bigger than average size...and I always baked some extras to send home with the kids. They liked to split them and fill them with cheese or peanut butter and strawberry jam."
I developed this recipe one evening while making "ordinary" biscuits. I had half a cup of potato flakes left in the box and I just added them to the dough. The biscuits came out of the oven as light and airy as pillows!
