(Even Better Than) Cheddar Bay Biscuits!!!

If you like the biscuits at Red Lobster, try these knock-offs some time... pure buttery deliciousness!   Mind you, they're not low-fat by any means... but that's OK!  Everything in moderation...  (haha - yeah, right...  not with these little garlicky delights!)

Cheddar Biscuit Dough:

2 1/2 cups AP flour   (if you're gluten-free, use Better Batter AP Flour mix - works perfectly without modifications!)
1 T Baking Powder
2 t sugar
1/4 t salt
1/2 t cayenne pepper
1/2 t granulated garlic
1 stick (8 T) butter, softened at room temperature
1 1/4 c sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 c sour cream
1 1/4 c milk

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Mix all of the dry ingredients, then use a fork or pastry blender to blend the butter in well. Stir in the sour cream and milk just until blended.  spoon into a greased 9x13 baking pan - this will make between 15-18 good-sized biscuits.  Spoon over half of the butter garlic topping (recipe below), then bake for 17-20 minutes or until browned; as soon as you remove these from the oven, spoon over the reserved half of the topping. 

 Butter Garlic Topping:

1 stick salted butter
1 teaspoon granulated garlic
1 teaspoon dried parsley

Combine these 3 ingredients in a microwave-safe bowl or measuring cup; set on medium power for 2 minutes.  stir well before using.

If you're feeling adventurous and want to shoot for complete authenticity, make yourself some shrimp scampi or crab-stuffed lobster tails to go along with the biscuits...  but who am I kidding?  These are perfect to eat as a meal all on their own - just wash down with a Diet Coke and you're set!   Just remember to be careful and don't burn your tongue trying to scarf these down right out of the oven...
