Difficulty: Easy

Servings: 20 biscuits

Prep 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

plus topping


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.

    Made these tonight and they were wonderful! Best recipe for these type biscuits I’ve made.

  2. 4-20

    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.
