2 1/2 cups Bisquick baking mix
4 tablespoons cold butter
1 heaping cup grated cheddar cheese
3/4 cup cold whole milk
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
Pinch of salt
Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
Combine Bisquick with cold butter in a medium bowl using a pastry cutter or a large fork. You don't want to mix too thoroughly. There should be small chunks of butter in there that are about the size of peas. Add cheddar cheese, milk and 1/4 teaspoon garlic. Mix by hand until combined, but don't over-mix.
Drop approximately 1/4-cup portions of the dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet using an ice cream scoop. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until the tops of the biscuits begin to turn light brown.
After removing biscuits from the oven, melt 2 tablespoons butter in a small bowl in microwave. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and the dried parsley flakes. Use a brush to spread this garlic butter over the tops of all the biscuits. Use all the butter.
Makes 12 biscuits.
