Cheddar cheese biscuits

Let me preface this post with a little disclaimer... I LOVE BREAD!!! Breads, biscuits, rolls, whatever they may be, I simply adore a well made bread product... Ok... onto the recipe!
These biscuits are all over the web, if you search cheddar biscuit recipe you will get a bazillion results. This is my favorite way to make them. You can add garlic powder to the biscuit mix itself if you want more garlic flavor. This is also super quick and easy because it uses bisquick as the base for the biscuits. Obviously you don't have to use bisquick... it's just simpler.

You will need:
2 c. bisquick
2/3 c. milk (whatever you have)
1/2 c. cheddar cheese ( I usually use 1/2 c cheddar and 1/2 c colby jack... I like cheese )
1/4 c. butter melted
1/4 tsp garlic powder
parsley flakes

Combine bisquick, milk, and cheeses together. Your dough will be very sticky, that's the right consistency. Spoon onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. I prefer using the parchment because cleanup is a breeze. Make sure you push any points down, otherwise your biscuits will have pokey things on them. Bake at 450 degrees for 8 - 10 minutes. While your biscuits are baking go ahead and combine your butter and garlic powder. You can change how much garlic goes into it, I sometimes use a tiny bit more depending on how I feel. :D Remove your biscuits from the oven and let them cool just slightly. Only let them cool enough so that they don't fall apart when you move them. They absorb the butter better they are warm. Put them on a plate or whatever you choose then pour the butter/garlic mixture over the top. Sprinkle generously with parsley flakes. Enjoy! Btw, if you did use the parchment paper, all you have to do now is gather that up and toss it! Rinse and wipe down your pans if you choose to, and your cleanup is done!
