Calories: 374kcal


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup cold buttermilk
  • 1 - 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

Melted Butter Topping

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • pinch onion powder
  • pinch kosher salt
  • 1/2 - 1 Tbsp minced fresh parsley


  • Preheat oven to 425°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Melt 1/2 cup butter and set aside to cool slightly.
  • In a mixing bowl, add flour, sugar, baking powder, garlic powder and salt.  Whisk to combine well.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, combine buttermilk with melted butter.  Mixture should look clumpy.
  • Pour buttermilk/butter into the flour mixture and stir until just combined and no flour streaks remain. Fold in shredded cheese.
  • Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup, a 2 oz cookie scoop, or even a regular spoon to scoop approximately 3-4 Tbsp of batter onto prepared baking sheet, leaving an inch or two in-between each biscuit.
  • Bake 12-15 minutes, until golden brown.
  • While biscuits are baking, combined topping ingredients (1/4 cup melted butter, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and parsley).
  • Once biscuits are removed from the oven, immediately brush with the butter topping.
