Garlic Parmesan Swirl Biscuits

Morsels of Life - Garlic Parmesan Swirl Biscuits

Another of my Five Friday Finds, this time from Good Cheap Eats. These biscuits are slightly similar to the Garlicky Cheddar Biscuits - just switch the cheddar for some parmesan and add a swirl! I love these types of recipes, where it looks like it took time and effort, but really, it didn't. Don't you?

We ate these swirl biscuits for breakfast, but you could just as easily serve them as a side to Little Lasagnas. In fact, if you served these biscuits with the Little Lasagnas, you'd be well on your way to starting a muffin tin meal! Wouldn't that be fun?

Whenever I eat something with a swirl like these biscuits (or Hua Juan, for example), I always like to peel it apart and especially taste the fillings/texture of the inside. Tell me I'm not the only one?

Mingling the flavors of garlic and Parmesan in a mouthwatering swirl biscuit.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Total time: 25 minutes
Yield: 12 servings


Mass Weight Volume Number Material Notes
2 cups flour I used half whole wheat and half white.
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup milk
2 teaspoons garlic powder
3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, grated
Garlic Parsley Butter, melted optional


1. Gather all materials.
2. Combine flour, salt, and baking powder, and then cut in butter until homogeneous.
3. Mix in milk until dough forms, and then roll out in a rectangle.
4. Sprinkle garlic powder and Parmesan cheese on top, making sure not to forget the edges.
5. Roll up dough and pinch to seal.
6. Cut dough into 12 pieces, about an inch wide.
7. Place each piece in a greased muffin tin and bake until golden brown and delicious, about 15 minutes.
8. (optional) Brush Garlic Parsley Butter on top of each biscuit.

Hint: Try cutting each biscuit apart with dental floss. It's a lot cleaner and neater than a knife (at least for me)! Plus, you get perfectly round biscuits. Just slide the floss under your roll, where you would cut, bring the two ends up, cross, and pull. That's it!
