"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."

Exceptionally light and airy! Great texture. I used Tillamook extra sharp cheddar, chives and chipotle mango seasoning. As this is what I had on hand. Served these with lentil/rice soup. These will definitely be made again. Thanks for sharing Mike! Made for Billboard Recipe tag.
