Prep Time: 10minutes
Cook Time: 12minutes
Preheat oven to 475º. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, soda, sugar, salt ,garlic powder and cayenne. In a separate bowl add the cold buttermilk to the slightly cooled melted butter and stir until the butter forms small clumps.
Add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture and stir just until combined, gently fold in grated cheese.
Use a ¼ cup measuring cup or a large ice cream scoop and soap out batter and drop onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake until the tops are golden brown, 12-14 minutes.
While baking, combine 2 tablespoons of melted butter with parsley and garlic powder. Brush on the biscuits as soon as they are removed from the oven.
Barbara's Notes + Tips
Use cold butter and try not to handle the dough any more than you have to.
You can leave out the cayenne if you don't want the added spice.
