Garlic Cheddar Biscuits

Want something deeeeeeelicious for breakfast? Or brunch? Or any time of day? Then these biscuits are your man. Biscuits to me are just not a Jewish food- I mean who wants a biscuit when you can have a bagel? But let me tell you, take one bite of these flaky, buttery, cheesey orbs and you will be hooked. You know those Red Lobster commercials where they show the piles and piles of cheese biscuits dripping with butter that they give out for free? Well, after drooling over those commercials one time too many I felt it was necessary to make them for myself, albeit without the lobster tail as my main. I served these with eggs for breakfast to some very important guests and only wished I had some good soy sausages to go with it. So ditch the bagel for your next brunch and get in the kitchen and whip these up!

2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp sugar
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp granulated garlic
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup butter, melt and cooled

For the topping:
2 Tbl butter, melted
1/2 tsp granulated garlic

Preheat oven to 475 degrees.

Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt and garlic together in a bowl. Stir in the cheese. In a separate bowl mix the buttermilk and butter together. It is ok if it looks lumpy. Add the milk mixture to the flour and mix just until everything is combined. Place about 1/4 cups full of mixture on a greased baking sheet and bake about 10 minutes until light golden brown. While the biscuits are baking mix the melted butter and garlic. Brush over the tops of the biscuits as soon as they come out of the oven.
