Adventures in Cooking: Cheese Garlic Biscuits (like Red Lobsters)

"There is no one of-woman-born who does not like Red Lobster cheddar biscuits. Anyone who claims otherwise is a liar and a Socialist."   Tina Fey, Bossypants

I was reminded of the awesomeness of the cheddar biscuits by my friend Emily which reminded me that I held the keys of awesomeness in my hand!  Many, many years ago, before I met Husband, I dated this guy for several years, whose mother passed along a secret family recipe titled "Cheese Garlic Biscuit's (like Red Lobster's)".  Okay, it wasn't a secret family recipe, it was a newspaper clipping, which she copied, enlarged, and laminated for me.  I dusted off my cookbook where I wrote down recipes (seriously, I wish I could go back to my 15 year ago self and explain how I would not need to write things down with handwriting ever again) and found the clipping:

Cheese Garlic Biscuits (like Red Lobster's)

I have no idea why there are only 11 on this cookie sheet.
Nope, no idea at all.  
2 c Bisquick
2/3 c milk
1/2 c Cheddar cheese, shredded
1/4 c butter
1 tsp. garlic powder

Heat oven to 450 degrees.  Mix baking mix, milk and cheese until a soft dough forms.  Beat vigorously 30 seconds.  Drop dough by spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.  Melt butter.  Mix with garlic powder, brushing over warm biscuits before removing from cookie sheet.  Serve warm.  Yields 12 biscuits, more or less.
