6 cups of biscuit mix
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1/2 cup of fresh minced parsley
2 cups cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2 teaspoons fresh cracked black pepper
2 to 3 cups of buttermilk or regular milk and juice of 1/2 fresh lemon
2 tablespoons of regular flour - for dusting work surface and dough.
1 egg plus 1 tablespoon water ( egg wash)
I did not have buttermilk so, a good trick is to squeeze lemon juice into milk. You will have to let sit in frig for 1 or more hours. I have even left this mixture overnight, when making pancakes in the morning. This really works. The acidity almost softens the flour yielding a fluffier biscuit with more flavor.
Place biscuit mix with all spices, cheese, and parsley together and stir. Make a well in the middle and start incorporating dry to wet together. Stir until it just comes together. Place in frig to rest, for at least 1 hour.
