Garlic Cheese Biscuits

If you have never been to red lobster... you are missing out. Who cares about the seafood...they have these biscuits that are heavenly. My mother-in-law makes some seriously good ones.  I took her info and created my own recipe. It's going to be a huge hit for Easter dinner. They are so pretty too! In her words... Don't even think about counting the weight watchers points for this dish.  They are super easy. There are a few steps to them, but very simple ones.
Garlic Cheese Biscuits

2 1/4 C. biscuit mix (I used Bisquick)
2 C. Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1 C. Half and Half

Garlic Butter:
1 cube butter
3/4 tsp garlic salt

1/4 tsp parsley flakes

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine biscuit mix, cheese and half and half in a bowl. (you can use milk or even water in place of half and half... but this way is so much better!) Stir until combined. Dough will be slightly moist. Drop the dough onto a cookie sheet. (do not roll, they get too hard)

In a small bowl combine butter and garlic salt and melt in the microwave.

Dust biscuit mix lightly with garlic salt and parsley flakes. Brush uncooked biscuits with garlic butter .

Bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes.  When the dough peaks get light brown... they are done. Don't over bake!

As soon as you pull them out of the oven, brush the biscuits with the rest of the garlic butter. Serve immediately.

How much does this recipe make?

Can you freeze the individual dropped dough? Wondering if you freezed them before you baked them? I'm still new to this freezing thing and would love to make these in a larger batch.
