January 26, 2015
"Like the ones served at Red Lobster, but not made with baking mix. I have made them without the topping to cut fat a little, and added the parsley to the dough. Makes 10 biscuits."

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, garlic powder, salt and cayenne pepper, if using.
In a large glass measuring cup, whisk together buttermilk and 1/2 cup melted butter. Pour mixture over dry ingredients and stir using a rubber spatula just until moist. Gently fold in cheese.
Using a 1/4-cup measuring cup, scoop the batter evenly onto the prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.
For the topping, whisk together 3 tablespoons melted butter, parsley and garlic powder in a small bowl.
Brush the tops of the baked biscuits with the butter mixture.
