Cheddar Bay Biscuits

These Cheddar Bay Biscuits will absolutely make your mouth water! It’s hard to even get them to the dinner table because everyone wants to grab them as soon as they’re out of the oven and just cool enough to eat.

The Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make Cheddar Bay Biscuits (the exact measurements and full recipe instructions are below in the easy to print recipe card):
  • All-purpose flour
  • Baking powder – the baking powder gives the biscuits a light, fluffy texture.
  • Granulated sugar – the sugar just balances the flavors, but does not make the biscuits sweet.
  • Garlic powder – the garlic is so important to this recipe! We used a good organic garlic powder that has great flavor.
  • Salt
  • Cayenne pepper – this is optional but adds a nice hint of flavor. It does not make the biscuits spicy.
  • Paprika
  • Buttermilk – if you don’t have buttermilk, regular milk will work. Buttermilk is thicker, so if you use regular milk you may need to add a little extra flour if the batter is too thin.
  • Butter – we used regular salted butter.
  • Cheddar cheese – the cheese is super important in this recipe! We like to use a sharp cheddar for the best cheese flavor, but any cheddar you like will work well.
  • Fresh parsley – you’ll use the parsley in the garlic butter glaze after the biscuits are baked. It’s okay to skip this ingredient if you don’t have any fresh parsley on hand.
