I love the Holidays, there’s such a magical feeling in the air.  Everywhere you look things sparkle and shine.  Lights blink, tinsel shines and the town glows.  The Tinsel Town collection from Pink Paislee has captured that magical feeling of the Holidays.  As soon as I received the collection I was immediately inspired to make a Holiday collection of decorations and gift containers.  What I especially love about the collection is the vintage and modern look of this collection.  The swirls, lettering and prints give the creations a vintage look and feel, while the colors are very modern and hip.

Cheesy Garlic Drop Biscuits

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.


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)


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.

Don’t these biscuits look delicious!! Can’t wait to try this recipe out.

Have a great Tuesday!!
