Not only are these biscuits big and delicious, but they’re a clone of a clone. A certain cookbook author who clones recipes, cloned this from a restaurant chain, then I cloned it again, because it wasn’t just the right “click” for our home. Isn’t imitation the best form of flattery? For best results you need a food processor.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and get out a cookie sheet or jelly roll pan.
2-1/2 cups of a biscuit baking mix (doesn’t have to be Bisquick- I use a store brand)
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 of an 8 oz. brick of cheddar cheese – just cut it into half, then into 4 pieces
1/2 of a stick of cold butter (not margarine) sliced into at least 4 pieces
3/4 cup buttermilk
Place the baking mix, garlic powder and cheese in the processor and whirl it for about 20 seconds – you gotta mix it well. Then add the butter and slowly pour in the buttermilk while it’s processing. Stop it when it all comes together in a blob.
Using your hands, pull out small blobs and slightly form into small balls and place on sheet pan – you should get about 12. Then rinse/wash off your hands because they will be gooey and – with wet hands – using the palms of each hand, slightly press to flatten each biscuit.
Bake for about 18-20 minutes, or until golden.
