2 cups flour
1 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
3 Tbsp butter, melted
1 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and then set it aside.
2. In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, garlic powder, salt and cayenne pepper.
3. In a small bowl whisk together buttermilk and butter. Pour the mixture over the top of the dry ingredients and stir using a spatula until moist. Gently fold in cheese.
4. Using a 1/4 measuring cup, scoop the batter evenly onto the baking sheet. Place in oven for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown. While the biscuits are baking, whisk together the topping ingredients. When the biscuits have finished, brush them with the butter topping and serve.
Yields: 15 biscuits
