Cheddar Biscuits

image_2These are…so good. I love cheesy, garlic-y biscuits. When I made these to go with dinner I also wound up having 3 of them with breakfast the next morning…and honestly might have continued with them at each meal had there been any left. These are super easy to make and the recipe makes a decent sized batch so you’ll have plenty for a crowd. I made them a little smaller than advised in the original recipe and they turned out perfect for us. Husband said they tasted like what you would expect to get at a restaurant. Score!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
For the topping
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • garlic salt

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat; set aside.

2. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, garlic powder, salt and cayenne pepper, if using.

3. In a large glass measuring cup or another bowl, whisk together buttermilk and butter. Pour mixture over dry ingredients and stir using a rubber spatula just until moist. Gently fold in cheese.

4. Using a 1/4-cup measuring cup, scoop the batter evenly onto the prepared baking sheet. Place into oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.

5. For the topping, whisk together butter, parsley and garlic powder in a small bowl. Working one at a time, brush the tops of the biscuits with the butter mixture. Top with garlic salt.

6. Serve immediately.
