Cheddar Buttermilk Biscuits

I used to LOVE going to Red Lobster for the Cheddar Bay biscuits...they were always so good.  A couple weeks ago I tried a new clam chowder recipe and wanted some biscuits to go with it. Most of them that I found used Bisquick or other buttermilk mixes which I don't ever have on hand. Luckily I found this one and it was pretty easy to put together and make!

Cheddar Buttermilk
2 cups flour(I did use half whole wheat)
2 tbsp sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cayenne
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup cold butter, cut up
1/2-1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup buttermilk

Mix together dry ingredients. Cut in butter until dough resembles course crumbs. Add in the cheese and toss. Stir in buttermilk just until moistened.

Turn dough onto lightly floured surface and kneed 8-10 times. Pat or roll into 1 inch thickness. Cut with 2 1/2 inch circle cutter. Place on ungreased cookie sheet 1 inch apart. Bake at 425 degrees for 15-18 mins until golden brown.

**These were pretty tasty, but there seemed to see something missing and I'm not sure what. It did taste GREAT with the soup and I used some of the leftovers in egg sandwiches and those were delicious!
