Cheddar Old Bay Biscuits

Have you ever devoured a basket of cheddar garlic biscuits at a Red Lobster restaurant before your main entree arrived?

These are so good that I wanted to make a large batch but came to my senses realizing I’d be eating them all and should practise some self-control.

Besides, they are so quick and easy, I can always make more tomorrow.  Great to serve with soups and salads.
