Cheddar Garlic Biscuits

I made these biscuits last night to go with chicken noodle soup.  They were very good.  They are supposed to be a healthier version of the Red Lobster biscuits. 

Makeover Cheddar Biscuits - from Healthy Cooking Magazine

•3/4 teaspoon salt

•1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, divided

•1/4 teaspoon baking soda

•4 tablespoons cold butter, divided

•1/3 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese

•1 cup buttermilk

•1/2 teaspoon dried parsley flakes


•In a large bowl, combine the flours, baking powder, salt, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder and baking soda. Cut in 3 tablespoons butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; add cheese. Stir in buttermilk just until moistened.

•Drop by two tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Bake at 425 for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Melt remaining butter; stir in parsley and remaining garlic powder. Brush over biscuits. Serve warm. Yield: 15 biscuits.
