Cheddar-Garlic Biscuits

These biscuits are so flavorful they don't require butter! My son thinks they are a little salty, but everyone else enjoys this variation on my regular spiky biscuit recipe. This rich biscuit make a nice change from traditional garlic bread with Italian cuisine.

Biscuit:
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
6 tablespoon cold butter
1 cup shredded cheddar
3/4 cup 2% milk
1/4 cup heavy cream

Topping:
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
pinch kosher salt

Preheat your oven to 425 F.

Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt & garlic powder. Cut the butter in with a pastry blender. Stir in the cheddar. Stir in the milk and cream all at once. Batter should be heavy and on the dry side.

Scoop 1/4 cup portions of dough onto a baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes or until biscuits are browning on top.

While biscuits are baking, place topping ingredients in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for thirty seconds. Stir until the butter is melted and the ingredients are combined. When the biscuits come out of the oven, immediately brush them with the butter mixture. Use all of the mixture.
