    Yield: 12 large biscuits or 18 small ones

    2 cups/250g all-purpose flour (unbleached or regular)
    3 tsp. baking powder
    1 tsp. salt
    1/2 tsp. garlic powder
    1/3 cup/75g butter, cold, cut into chunks
    2 Tbsp. canola or any flavourless, odourless vegetable oil
    1 heaping cup/ 6-7 oz. /150-170g grated cheddar cheese (sharp flavoured is best, I used extra sharp)
    1/2 Ė 2/3 cup or 120-160ml milk (I didnít need more than 1/2 a cup)

    For brushing on top:
    3 Tbsp. butter
    1/2 tsp. garlic powder
    1/2 tsp. dried parsley flakes or 1 Tbsp. fresh parsley, finely chopped


1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and garlic powder.
2. Add the cubed butter. Using a pastry cutter or a fork, cut butter into flour until it is coarse, pea-sized (doesnít need to be fine).
3. Add oil, grated cheddar cheese and the milk. Stir till well combined and holds together.
4. Make sure to keep adding milk a bit at a time, just until the dough is moistened and you can no longer see any raw flour.
5. Drop approximately 1/4 cup portions of the dough onto an un-greased cookie sheet or a Silpat using an ice cream scoop or large spoon.
6. Bake for 15-17 minutes in a preheated oven at 400F/.
7. While biscuits are baking, melt 3 tablespoons butter is a small bowl with 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and the parsley.
8. When biscuits come out of the oven, use a brush to spread this garlic butter over the tops of all the biscuits. Do this a few times Ė itís fun to watch all the butter getting absorbed into the biscuit! Use up all of the butter. Serve warm.
