Cheddar Biscuits

My husband and I love Red Lobsters biscuits, and I have searched and tested many recipes in an attempt to find something similar. I have FINALLY found it. This recipe is crazy easy and tastes the very same. Enjoy!!!

2 cups flour
1 Tbs baking powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbs shortening
3 Tbs butter, cold
1 cup buttermilk
1 1/4 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, garlic powder and salt. Cut in shortening and butter until coarse crumbs are formed. Lightly mix in grated cheese. Mix in buttermilk just until moist. Try not to mix to much, it will make your biscuits less fluffy and more tough. Drop the biscuits onto a greased baking sheet. Bake for 12-14 minutes, until browned and golden. While the biscuits are baking, in a small bowl combine three tablespoons melted butter, 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley flakes, 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder and a pinch of salt. Right when the biscuits come out of the oven, brush the butter/herb mixture over the biscuits. Serve immediately.

Tips: Not everyone has buttermilk on hand, so you can substitute regular milk with a splash of lemon juice in it. Let milk and lemon juice sit 1-2 minutes, then pour in just like it was butter milk
