I first saw these biscuits a couple months back over at Mel's Kitchen Cafe and knew I had to try them. They sounded so fabulous and reminded me of the biscuits you get at Red Lobster. If you've had their version, you know they are delicious! They come together extremely easily, especially if you have a food processor to do most of the work.
2 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 Tbs. Baking Powder
1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp. Salt
2 Tbs. Shortening
3 Tbs. Butter, cold
1 Cup Buttermilk
1 1/4 Cup Grated Sharp Cheddar
3 Tbs. Melted butter
1/4 tsp. chopped parsley
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 425 Degrees
Start off with mixing together the Flour, Baking Powder, Garlic Powder, and Salt.
Cut in the shortening and butter. I used a food processor and just lightly processed the mixture until it was the consistency of grainy sand.
If not already, put mixture into a mixing bowl. Mix in the Chives and Cheddar Cheese.
After the Cheddar and chives are mixed in, pour in your butter milk. Mix very lightly. If you stir too much the mixture will not result in light fluffy biscuits. If there are dry spots, that's okay!
Scoop and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicon mat.
Bake for 12-14 minutes. While the biscuits are baking, make your butter mixture by mixing the melted butter, parsley, garlic powder and salt.
When biscuits are done, brush them right out of the oven with the butter and herb mixture. Eat warm!
