Lately I have noticed a lot of stores have started carrying ready made mixes for "Red Lobster Cheese Biscuits". Having made these myself for years, I thought I would share my recipe. No sense in spending $4 for a bag that will only make you 12 biscuits and is full of preservatives. And for good measure, I am sharing my biscuit mix recipe as well. Enjoy!
8 Cups Flour (Regular or gluten free flour works here. Whatever your needs are.)
1 1/4 Cups Nonfat Dry Milk Powder
1/4 Cup Baking Powder
1 Tablespoon Salt
2 Cups Shortening
Combine flour, milk, baking powder, and salt in a very large bowl.
Cut in shortening using a pastry cutter until it resembles coarse cornmeal.
Store in tightly closed covered container in a cool place. (I put mine in the fridge.)
Makes about 10 cups.
2 cups biscuit mix
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 to 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2/3 cups milk (I have used broth here with excellent results)
Stir until combined.
Using a small scoop, place the dough on a baking pan lined with parchment paper. (Remember, these are drop biscuits, no need to make them pretty.)
Bake in 375 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. (All ovens vary! Keep an eye on your biscuits, you don't want to burn up your hard work.)
2 Tbsp melted butter
2 tsp oregano
1 tsp garlic salt.
While biscuits bake, combine spread ingredients.
Brush baked biscuits with the garlic topping.
