  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder divided
  • 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter cut into cubes
  • 4 ounces 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup buttermilk can sub milk, cream, or half and half if you don't have buttermilk
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley


  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and 1 1/2 teaspoons of garlic powder. Use a pastry blender or your fingertips to work the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Stir the cheddar into the mixture than stir in the buttermilk (start with 3/4 cup of the buttermilk and then gradually add more until it all comes together).
  • Scoop 1/4-cup size scoops of the dough onto a baking sheet with the edges of each biscuit barely touching. Bake until golden, 12-15 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the melted butter and remaining garlic powder. Brush the tops of the biscuits liberally
