The Best Biscuits Ever

I heard this rumor that a certain large seafood chain brushes parsley, garlic and melted butter on top of their biscuits, which make them absolutely addicting.

So I tried it.

And shouldn’t have.

I wanted to just eat these alone for supper, without the Cornish Game Hen Soup that I served them with.

Salty, garlicky, cheesy goodness.

Ingredients Needed:

Biscuits:
2 cups of flour
1 tbs baking powder
1/2 cup of butter
1/2 tsp of salt
1 cup of cheese
2/3 milk

Butter Topping:
2 tbs butter
1/2 tsp parsley
1/2 tsp garlic powder

Kick the tires and light the fires to 425 degrees.

Combine all the dry ingredients well, take a whisk to them or sift. Then cut in the butter until the mixture is coarse crumbs.

Melt the butter for the topping in the microwave with the garlic and parsley. I melted it together to soften up the parsley a bit.

Once the butter is cut in, pour the milk in, add the cheese and combine.

Roll the dough out until it’s about 1/2 – 3/4 inch thick, then use either a biscuit cutter, or a glass to cut out the biscuits.

Using your pastry brush, brush copious amounts of the butter sauce on the top of the biscuits and pop into the oven.

Bake for 10-15 minutes until they have risen and are  starting to brown on top.

And beware, know that everyone that eats them will fall in love with you. Serve them wisely.

Just like the garlic cheese biscuits at your local seafood chain but better hot and fresh from your oven!

I actually only had marble cheese on hand, and they were still amazing even though it is a mild cheese. Medium would be the best for most tastes but I imagine old like Katia above used would be fantastic too! I would use a medium cheddar to start.
