red lobster copycat cheddar and garlic biscuits

adapted from Cinnamon Spice & Everything Nice

2 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

6 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

3/4 cup buttermilk (or use the milk + splash of vinegar trick like I did)

topping:

2 tablespoons butter, melted

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon dried parsley

Preheat oven to 400. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and garlic powder. Cut in butter using a pastry blender or two knives, until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Mix in cheddar cheese, then add buttermilk. Stir until just combined. Drop large spoonfuls of batter onto a lightly greased baking sheet (I used an ice cream scoop and it worked great). Bake 14 to 16 minutes, or until lightly browned. Whisk together butter, garlic powder, and parsley, and brush over warm biscuits. Serve warm.
