Cheesy, Garlic Biscuits

Here's a recipe similar to the biscuits served at Red Lobster. Easy and delicious! Goes great with my Shrimp Scampi recipe.

2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1/3 cup shortening
1 cup milk
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 teaspoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and parsley. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk and cheese; stir with fork until blended. Dough will be sticky. Drop from spoon onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes until lightly golden brown. In small bowl, combine melted butter, parsley, garlic powder, and salt. Brush tops of biscuits with melted garlic butter. Serve warm. Makes 12-16 biscuits.
