Cheddar Bay Biscuits (Red Lobster)



 If you love Red Lobster’s famous Cheddar Bay drop biscuits? This is them. Probably better.  I tried several knock off recipes from the internet and wasn’t completely impressed. Most of them use biscuit mix (Bisquick) as a starter. This recipe is very easy and served with Chili or Shepard's Pie. Yummers!!!


Ingredients:

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cups grated cheddar cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1 1/4 cups milk

Place first 5 ingredients (or 2 1/2 cups baking mix) in a large bowl. Add cayenne pepper and garlic powder.Work in the butter with a pastry cutter. Stir in cheese then add sour cream and milk. Scoop biscuit dough with ice cream scoop and place in a parchment lined cookie sheet.

Topping:

6 tablespoons butter, melted
¾ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon parsley
Melt butter. Stir in garlic powder, parsley, and a dash of salt. Bake at 450 degrees for 20-25 minutes. After removing biscuits from the oven, spoon the topping over them.*Your baking time may vary! I make 15 biscuits from this recipe. If you make your biscuits smaller or larger, it will change your baking time.
