Black Pepper Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Ingredients:    (9 biscuits)

  • 2 1/2 cups Bisquick
  • 4 Tbsp cold butter, cut into small cubes
  • 1 cup extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded and cold
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley flakes

Garlic Butter topping

  • 4 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 tsp dried parsley flakes
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • kosher salt for sprinkling

Step-by-Step:  

Tip - after cutting my butter into small cubes, I put it back into the fridge.  I left it there until the moment I needed it, so it would stay cold.  Same thing with the cheese.  Grate it, then refrigerate it until you are ready to add it to the mix.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.  Prepare your pan with either cooking spray or parchment paper (my personal preference).  Mix together the biscuit ingredients and stir only until they are combined.  Do not over stir them.  Drop by 1/4 cup amounts onto the parchment paper, leaving space in between them for them to spread out.  Bake for about 12 minutes or until golden brown. 

While the bisuits are baking, prepare the garlic butter topping.  Melt the butter in the microwave in a small pot on the stovetop.  Add in the seasoning and stir to combine.

After you take the biscuits out of the oven, brush the tops with the garlic butter topping.  Sprinkle just a bit of kosher salt over the tops of them.  Enjoy!
