Last night, on our way home,  the usual discussion ensued about "what shall we have for dinner?"  We settled on something simple..... A nice bowl of tomato basil soup and Cheddar Bay Biscuits.  We sat at the table and gobbled them  up for dinner!

Cheddar Bay Biscuits:

You will need:   1 cup flour, 2 Tsp baking powder, 1/4 Tsp cream of tartar, 1/4 Tsp sugar, 1/4 Tsp salt, 1/3 cup milk, 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) cold butter, cubed, 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese and 1/4 Tsp garlic powder
Preheat oven to 450 degrees

Mix dry ingredients together, cut in butter and add cheese,  Pour in milk a little at a time,  After you pat out the dough cut with a biscuit cutter - I cut 15 2" size which were smaller than Red Lobster's.

Brush this topping on biscuits before putting in oven:
1 Tbs melted butter, 1/4 Tsp dried parsley, 1/4 Tsp Italian seasoning, 1/2 Tsp garlic powder, pinch of salt and pinch of OLD BAY SEASONING

Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes

  9. Hi Bernideen
    I've never put cream of tartar in biscuits, wonder what it does?
    Are these going to taste like the ones from Red Lobster, because if they do, they are delicious!

  10. Thanks for posting, I can't wait to try these biscuits.
