I have many fond memories of Cooker (for those of you who don’t know it, Cooker was a restaurant that went out of business years back).

As I have mentioned before, I worked there years ago.   I truly loved everything on the menu.  Many of my favorite recipes I re-created from there, such as these biscuits!

They are sweet and delicious!

Cooker Biscuits


2 cups Homemade Bisquick
2/3 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted


1. Heat oven to 450°.

2. Mix baking mix, milk and sugar to make a soft dough.  Stir until well incorporated.  Drop dough by 8 spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheet.

3. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.  Brush melted butter onto warm biscuits before removing from baking sheet.  Serve warm.

Makes 8 biscuits

  1. I love using Bisquick baking mix. I'm sure these taste great! Thanks for sharing with us at the #HomeMattersParty link party.

  2. i, too, loved-loved-loved cooker. i remember the first meal i had at a cooker (this one was in suburban cincinnati) was one of my fave meals ever. it was a pasta thing, probably with shrimp and a cream sauce, but not alfredo, and it had diced tomatoes on/in it. i especially remember they tasted like REAL, fresh-out-of-my-dad's-garden, RIPE, late-summer ohio tomatoes, not canned. finest kind. i asked my server about the tomatoes, and she said she thought they were local produce, but she didn't know from where. never had any restaurant meal with tomatoes as good as that ever again. this was around 20 years ago. i moved from that area 15 years ago, but we also had a cooker where i live now, in northeast ohio. sigh - why did cooker die? --suz in ohio

    1. From what I've heard, Suz, it was just poorly managed at the corporate level. A few years a ago I went to Cedar Point in Sandusky, OH and there was a Cooker there. Someone had purchased it and was trying to bring it back. I went there for dinner and the menu was exactly the same but the service was took over an hour to get any food. The reviews online were terrible; everyone had the same problem. The managers apologized and tried to help, but I guess they could never get it together because the next year they were closed. So sad... they really did have great food.
