Garlic Cheddar Biscuits

One morning I woke up and wanted some Cheddar Bay Biscuits from Red lobster. 2 things- 1: Red Lobster wasn’t open at 9 am and 2: That’s a 25-30 min drive. In that time, I could have made them. So that’s exactly what I did. It was actually pretty simple.

Ingredients:

Biscuits:

  • 2 cups of white lily self rising flour.
  • 1 cup whole buttermilk (really cold).
  • 6 tablespoons of salted butter (really cold or frozen).
  • 2 tablespoons of garlic powder
  • 1 cup of cheddar cheese.

Garlic butter to brush on top:

  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • parsley
  1. Preheat oven to 450
  2. Add Flour to a bowl and grate your butter into the flour.
  3. Cut your butter into the Flour using a fork or pastry blender (The youtube video shows you how to cut butter into flour). Your flour should resemble crumbs once done.
  4. Make a well in the flour and add your buttermilk. Gently fold the flour into the buttermilk until all combined. Yes, the dough is sticky–don’t worry.
  5. Add in garlic powder and cheese. Mix until combined.
  6. Add flour to clean counter top and put the dough on top.
  7. fold the dough into layers and then flatten the dough–or you can do the “drop” method–which is basically balling up the dough and putting it on the pan.
  8. Using a floured biscuit cutter or rim of a glass, cut out your biscuits. Do not twist the cutter or glass. It should be a down and up motion.
  9. Add your biscuits to a cookie sheet, I like baking mine in my cast iron skillet.
  10. Bake 15 minutes.
  11. While the biscuits are baking: melt 2 tablespoons of butter, add garlic powder and parsley.
  12. Brush on top of biscuits once they’re done.
