PC Gourmet--Want One?!

Today, I have a special surprise for one of you. Papercrafts has released another mouthwatering book---PC Gourmet and I have an extra copy to give away! This beautiful book would make the perfect holiday gift (for yourself!) or for that special friend who loves cooking and crafting. The book features over 50 original recipes AND over 110 projects to showcase the culinary treats.

Here is a sneak peek at a recipe and a project from the book. Both were created by PC Pro Alisa Bangerter.
Cheesy Garlic Drop Biscuits
By: Alisa Bangerter

This is a perfect recipe to pull out if you are short on time because there is no rolling or cutting. The cheese and garlic add extra kick to a plain biscuit, and kids love them. They are the perfect accompaniment to serve with soups or stews, and are great served with a salad.
INGREDIENTS
2 c. flour
2 tbsp. granulated sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2/3 c. butter or margarine
1 1/2 c. grated cheddar cheese
1 1/4 c. milk
Chives (optional)
DIRECTIONS
Mix together dry ingredients. Cut in butter with pastry cutter until mixture is fine. Add cheese and mix well. Add milk and stir until just moistened. Drop by spoonfuls onto greased baking sheet. Sprinkle top with chopped dried or fresh chives if desired. Bake at 400 degrees for approx. 15 minutes.

Enjoy Halloween Tag
