Garlic Cheese Biscuits

Posting two recipes this week since I didn't post any last, I always serve these biscuits with Lemon Pepper Shrimp Linguine ~ it just wouldn't be right to post one and not the other!  : ) 

My family ♥loves♥loves♥loves♥.....did I mention ♥LOVES♥ these tender, buttery, cheesy & garlicy gems of delight!  To be honest. we love any biscuits......buttermilk with honey, buttermilk with jam, cinnamon raisin.... if it's a biscuit, we love 'em!  It's a good thing, too, because I'm fairly certain it would be against the law to be ♥Southern♥ and not love biscuits. ; )

My kids think it's a special occasion when I make these.....if you're familiar with Red Lobster and their *amazing* Cheddar Bay Biscuits, these taste nearly ~ if not completley ~ identical to thiers.


2 cups all-purpose flour

3 teaspoons garlic powder, divided

2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules

1/2 cup butter flavor shortening

3/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

1 cup buttermilk
(Don't have buttermilk?  Put 1 Tbsp. white vinegar into a measuring cup and fill it up the rest of the way with milk to measure 1 like a charm for baking!)

3 tablespoons butter, melted
In a small bowl, combine the flour, 2 teaspoons garlic powder, baking powder, baking soda
and 1/2 teaspoon bouillon; cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Add cheese. Stir in buttermilk just until moistened. Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls
1 inches apart onto a greased baking sheet.

Bake at 450 for 10 minutes.

Combine butter with remaining garlic powder; brush over biscuits.

 Bake 4 minutes longer or until golden brown.

Serve warm and try not to eat them all yourself! 
I know sharing is hard sometimes, but it IS the right thing to do! ; )

Yield: about 1 dozen.

Yum! I wouldn't serve these with the linguine shrimp recipe - too many carbs in one meal. But these would be fantastic with some of my chicken recipes. I will definitely be trying these!

Will also try the shrimp recipe, I like your idea of doubling the items other than linguine.

Stopping by from Hip Homeschool Hop!

Love those red lobster biscuits! Copied your recipe so I can try it out. I had one years ago, but I can't find it.
