Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.

  • Sift flour, baking powder, white sugar, cream of tartar, 1/3 teaspoon garlic powder, and salt together in a large bowl. Mash unsalted butter cubes into the flour mixture with a pastry cutter or large fork until coarsely blended. Mix Cheddar cheese and Italian seasoning into the flour mixture.

  • Pour milk over the flour mixture while stirring until you get a tough and sticky dough. Drop dough by the tablespoon onto the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in preheated oven until lightly browned, about 15 minutes.

  • Stir melted salted butter, parsley flakes, and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder together in a bowl; brush over biscuits immediately upon removing from the oven.

Cook's Note:

For slightly crispier tops, put back in the oven for two minutes after brushing.
