  • 1¼ cups gluten-free biscuit mix
  • 3 Tbsp. Spectrum Organic All-Vegetable Shortening
  • 1 large egg
  • 2–4 Tbsp. cold water
  • ¾ cup shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, cut shortening into biscuit mix with a fork and knife or a pastry blender until itʼs fully incorporated. Stir in egg and 1 tablespoon water at a time until you have a stiff but workable dough. You may not need all 4 tablespoons of water. Fold a ½ cup cheese and the garlic into the dough.
