Ultimate Cheddar Bay Biscuits

I found this recipe over at Suzanne's blog Chickens in the Road.  Yes, these are like the biscuits from that seafood restaurant that starts with Red and ends in Lobster...but better.  *wink*  I made them to accompany our Sunday afternoon chili.  And what a lovely companion it was!  These biscuits are sooo good!  It definitely passed the taste test of the whole family!  I even drizzled some of the butter topping over my mom's gluten free bread and popped that in the oven. She loved it!  I made a few tweaks to the recipe so it's a bit different than what you'll find at Suzanne's site.  Feel free to do some tweaking of your own.  That's the fun part of cooking! *wink*

Ultimate Cheddar Bay Biscuits

2 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1 T. baking powder
2 t. sugar
1/2 t. cream of tartar
1/4 t. salt
1/4 heaping t. ground cayenne pepper
1 t. garlic powder
1/2 c. butter, softened
3/4 c. grated mild cheddar cheese
3/4 c. grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1 1/4 cups milk

6 tablespoons butter, melted
1 1/4 t. garlic powder
1 teaspoon parsley
dash of salt

Mix first 7 ingredients in a large bowl.  Cut in butter with a pastry cutter. Stir in cheese then add sour cream and milk. Scoop large spoonfuls of biscuit dough in a greased 9 x 13 casserole pan.  (Not a cookie sheet...you need an edge to catch the butter!) 

For the topping: Melt butter. Stir in garlic powder, parsley, and a dash of salt. Spoon half of the topping over unbaked biscuits.  Bake at 450 degrees for 20-ish minutes.  (Mine made 15 biscuits, but you can get more if you make smaller scoops.)  After removing biscuits from the oven, spoon the rest of the topping over them.  These are sooo good!  (Did I say that already? *wink*) Enjoy!
