  1. The closest I’ve found to buttery biscuits. I do swap out garlic powder for an extra 1/2 tsp of baking powder if I missed am going for regular biscuits vets red lobster cheddar bay biscuits. I am thinking of swapping cheddar for mozzarella or cream cheese and garlic for a cinnamon sweetener mix for a sweeter biscuit in the future. Has anyone made these cutting the butter into the dough versus melted?

  2. These biscuits are SO delicious! I double the recipe and put 1/4 cup in a very well greased cupcake pan. Thank you for this great recipe!

  3. I am about to do a low carb diet to get rid of all the stress eating and drinking I have been doing in preparation for my move! These look amazing because I hate giving up biscuits!
