These Copycat Cheddar Bay Biscuits are very popular and for good reason, they are delicious- what’s not to like, bread-cheese-butter-garlic, yum. The scary part is how simple they are to make.
If you do not have any Bisquik handy, you can make your own. Just combine the following items:
9 cups flour
1/3 cup baking powder
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups shortening
1 tablespoon salt
1 cup powdered milk (optional)
2 teaspoons cream of tartar (optional)
In a large mixing bowl or food processor, mix all the dry ingredients together. Then cut the shorting into the mix or if using a food processor pulse in the shortening until it resembles sand. Store in an airtight container, does not have to be refrigerated.
This will be enough for two batches of biscuits.

2 cups Bisquick mix
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar
2/3 cup milk
3 tbsp butter
1 tsp dried parsley (you can use fresh)
1 tsp garlic salt
Preheat oven to 400? and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or use a baking stone.
Mix Bisquick, garlic powder and cheese in medium bowl. Stir in milk until just combined. Scoop lumps of dough onto the cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes.
While they are baking, melt the butter, then stir in the parsley and garlic salt. After 10 minutes, pull them out of the oven and brush them with the butter mixture. Bake for another 5 minutes, or until golden brown.
Before serving, brush the biscuits with the remaining butter mixture.
