Servings: 20 biscuitsPrep Time: 20 minutes Cook Time: 25 minutes
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cups grated cheddar cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1 1/4 cups milk
This is a Quick Mix recipe.
Note: If using a baking mix, replace first 5 ingredients with 2 1/2 cups baking mix.
Place first 5 ingredients (or 2 1/2 cups baking mix) in a large bowl. Add cayenne pepper and garlic powder. Work in the butter with a pastry cutter. Stir in cheese then add sour cream and milk. Scoop biscuit dough out by big spoonfuls and place in a greased 9 x 13 casserole pan. (Or other type of pan with an edge to it–-if you use a flat baking sheet, butter sauce will spill down into your oven.)
6 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon parsley
dash of salt
Melt butter. Stir in garlic powder, parsley, and a dash of salt. Spoon half of topping over unbaked biscuits. Bake at 450 degrees for 25 minutes.* After removing biscuits from the oven, spoon the rest of the topping over them.
*Your baking time may vary! I make 20 biscuits from this recipe. If you make your biscuits smaller or larger, it will change your baking time.

I took this recipe to work and got our baker to make these. His didn’t look as good(his wasn’t as tightly dropped as these, so they did spread a little too much) BUT they were sooo delicious. Thank you from all of us.

I have made this twice, I’ve seen the blog entry you wrote on it about the negative reviews. I’m not sure what their point was and I’m a little befuddled because it has worked both times in different weather conditions at my house. They don’t last long, I love the flavor, the kick of cayenne and I feel like I am biscuit making queen when they come out perfect (I am not good at making biscuits not matter how hard I try).

I made these by actually using the Hardee’s biscuit recipe, but using Suzanne’s add-ins and topping. I have tried various copy-cat recipes in the past. These are absolutely spot-on. Wonderful.
