  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour regular or gluten-free measure-for-measure flour blend
  • 1 tablespoon Baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon Granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Garlic powder
  • 1/3 cup Unsalted butter cubed at room temperature
  • 1 cup shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 cup Milk or Half-and-Half

Butter Topping

  • 3 tablespoons Unsalted butter melted
  • ½ teaspoon dried Parsley
  • ½ teaspoon Garlic powder


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F and prepare a baking sheet by spraying with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and garlic powder.
  • Add the cubed butter and work it into the flour with a pastry blender.
  • When the mixture resembles coarse sand, add the cheese and stir to combine.
  • Pour in the milk and stir carefully until just combined, being careful not to overmix the dough.
  • Use an ice cream scoop or ¼ cup to scoop out balls of dough.
  • Place the dough on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 13 to 15 minutes, until golden brown.
  • While the biscuits are baking, prepare the butter topping by mixing together the melted butter, dried parsley, and garlic powder in a small bowl.
  • Brush the butter over the baked biscuits before serving.


For a bit of spice add 1/4 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper into the biscuit mix.
