Cheddar Garlic Biscuits

After trying, trying and trying again, these biscuits finally turned out delicious and a lot like Red Lobster's Cheddar Bay Biscuits.  Soft, warm, tender and subtly salty.  They were a big hit at our dinner table and I hope they are a big hit at yours as well.

1 1/4 c Gluten Free Bisquick
3/4 c Natalie's Gluten Free Flour
2 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1/4 t garlic powder
5 T cold butter
1 c cheddar cheese, shredded
1 c milk

4 T butter
1/4 t garlic powder
1/8 t salt
3/4 t dried parsley flakes

1.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease.
2.  Mix together bisquick, flour, baking powder, baking soda and garlic powder.  Cut in butter and mix with a pastry blender until the butter is in pea size pieces.   Stir in cheese.  Add milk and stir just til combined.  Be careful not to over stir.
3.  Drop by big spoonfuls onto cookie sheet.
4.  Bake 12-14 minutes or until lightly browned.  Serve warm.

Tip:  If you use a gluten free flour mixture that doesn't already contain xanthan gum, then you will need to add 1/4 t xanthan gum to your dry ingredients.
