Cheddar Bay Biscuits

These are my family’s favorite. ❤ They are so light, fluffy and buttery. Mmmm..

Biscuits

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

2 teaspoons garlic powder or minced garlic ( I use minced garlic)

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 butter, melted

1 tablespoon chopped parsley leaves

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder or minced garlic

 

DIRECTIONS:

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

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

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.

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

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.

Serve immediately. Yum.
