Cheddar Baking Powder Biscuits

There's a story behind these.  My late Great Aunt Harriett (very special lady to me) wanted to know how Red Lobster made their biscuits.  My bold (very special) grandfather (who is so much like my husband) marched right up and asked them the recipe.  Well, they gave it to him and my Aunt Harriett gave  the recipe to me.  I love the recipes she gave me because she included so many little side notes, tips and stories.  You can hardly read her recipes because there's a story behind everything squeezed in with fine print.  Lovely memories!

I guess Red Lobster used Bisquick...which I do not.  Bisquick isn't made like it used to there's High Fructose Corn Syrup (which we avoid) and many other words that I can't pronounce.  I use the basic Better Homes and Gardens "Biscuits Supreme" and add the necessary components to make them the Cheddar Baking Powder Biscuits.  This recipe goes perfectly with Creamy Chicken Stew.

3 cups flour
4 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp garlic powder
