  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter cut into small pieces, cold
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 6 oz grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Line a quarter sheet baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Cut the butter into small pieces and stick back in the fridge or freezer until ready to use.
  • Combine the flour, garlic powder, onion powder, sugar, salt, and baking powder.
  • Use a pastry cutter to cut the VERY COLD butter in. You want to see small, pea-sized pieces of butter throughout the dough.
  • Stir in the buttermilk and mix just until the ingredients are combined. The dough will be sticky.
  • Stir in the shredded cheese and use your hands to fully incorporate into the dough.
  • Use an ice cream scoop to scoop the dough out onto the parchment lined baking sheet. Pat down gently to flatten slightly.
  • Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until tops are golden brown and biscuits are cooked through.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the garlic powder and melted butter.
  • Add the chopped parsley and stir to combine.
  • Use a pastry brush to brush the melted butter mixture on top of each biscuit.
  • Serve immediately.
