adapted from Damn Delicious


2 c. all-purpose unbleached flour

1 T. sugar

1 T. baking powder

2 t. garlic powder

1 t. himalayan sea salt

1 c. buttermilk (I use 4 T. of powdered cultured buttermilk and 1 c. water mixed)

1/2 c. unsalted butter, melted

6 oz. extra sharp cheddar, shredded

3 T. salted butter, melted

1 T. chopped freshly parsley

1/2 t. garlic powder


  1. Line a large baking sheet with a silicon mat (or parchment paper). 
  2. Pre-heat the oven to 450 degrees fahrenheit. 
  3. Combine the first five ingredients in a large bowl. 
  4. In another bowl, melt the butter.  In a third bowl, combine the powdered buttermilk and water and whisk in the melted butter.
  5. Add the butter and buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture and stir with a spoon just until combined.
  6. Add in the cheddar and stir again.
  7. The dough will be wet.  With a large spoon, scoop large scoops (almost 1/2 c. each) onto the baking sheet.
  8. Bake for about 13 minutes or until golden brown.
  9. Let cool on the baking sheet while melting the salted butter with the garlic powder and chopped parsley.
  10. With a silicon brush, generously butter the warm biscuits with butter.
  11. Serve immediately or let cool completely and refrigerate.
  12. If refrigerated warm slightly before serving
