Paper Crafts Gourmet !! Yum.

Looks what our friends at Paper Crafts magazine have cooked up! If you like to CRAFT and COOk, then this book will be a must have for your library. They've compiled 50 original recipes and over 110 paper-crafted creations into a beautiful book called Paper Crafts Gourmet. You can read more about it here and also be sure to order your copy and one for a friend too! I can't wait to get my copy...there is nothing I enjoy more than baking, cooking, and paper-crafting!

And, to help entice you a bit more about this book, I get to share a project and recipe created by Alisa Bangerter that you'll find inside the pages of this book. Perfect for a Halloween Feast this Friday night --I'm thinking chili and biscuits in just a few days :) Plus they're fast and easy to make too! Here's the supply lists, instructions, and the recipe for you to create your own goodies. Maybe I'll type up my vegetarian chili recipe and share that tomorrow!

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.

Thank you Paper Crafts magazine and Alisa for sharing!
