Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits

The waiter/tress asks you what you'd like to drink. You quickly order because you know all you can think about is him/her bringing you those ever-so-delicious cheddar biscuits! Don't deny it ;)

My sous chef is a lover of these biscuits, and, because it's his birthday week, I'm trying to make dishes I know that he would love! So, as a surprise side to last night's dinner (stay tuned for that recipe), I decided to make these biscuits for him.

Surprisingly, I found this recipe on abc.com here. For quick reference, however, I'll supply you what that link says below.

2 ½ cups Bisquick baking mix
¾ cup cold whole milk
4 tablespoons cold butter (1/2 stick)
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
1 heaping cup grated cheddar cheese

Brush on Top:
2 tablespoons butter, melted
¼ teaspoon dried parsley flakes
½ teaspoon garlic powder
pinch salt

1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

2. Combine Bisquick with cold butter in a medium bowl using a pastry cutter or a large fork. You don't want to mix too thoroughly. There should be small chunks of butter in there that are about the size of peas.

Add cheddar cheese, milk, and ¼ teaspoon garlic. Mix by hand until combined, but don't over mix.3. Drop approximately ¼-cup portions of the dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet using an ice cream scoop.

4. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until the tops of the biscuits begin to turn light brown.

5. When you take the biscuits out of the oven, melt 2 tablespoons butter is a small bowl in your microwave. Stir in ½ teaspoon garlic powder and the dried parsley flakes. Use a brush to spread this garlic butter over the tops of all the biscuits. Use up all of the butter. Makes one dozen biscuits.
