Red Lobster Inspired Garlic Cheese Biscuits
1 C Milk 1/3 C Mayonnaise 1 Tb Sugar** 2 C Self-rising flour* 1/4 C Kraft American Cheese** (shredded) 1/2 T Garlic POWDER -- not salt 3 Tb Melted butter or margarine Muffin paper liners
*You may use all-purpose (regular) flour, however biscuits will not rise
much and have a denser texture; flavors should be about identical.
**Can substitute 3 packets of Sweet & Low for the sugar.
In a 1 1/2 qt mixing bowl combine milk, mayo, sugar, and flour. Beat on high speed with electric mixer for almost a minute, until smooth and completely combined. Using a
rubber bowl scraper, streak the dough with the cheese. Batter should NOT
be thin enough to pour; if necessary, add only enough additional flour
so batter will “drop” from spoon. Drop batter into 10 paper-lined muffin
tins, or a greater number of tiny muffin cups. (Muffins tend to triple
in size when baked; fill lightly.) Melt butter; mix in garlic, and brush
tops of dough. You may shake 1 tsp additional cheese on each muffin if
you wish. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden. Cool in pan on rack
for 30 minutes. These definitely should be served freshly baked and
