Red Lobster Inspired Garlic Cheese Biscuits
1 c milk
1/3 c mayonnaise
1 T sugar
2 c self-rising flour
1/4 c kraft american cheese
1/2 t garlic powder, not salt
3 T butter (or margarine),Melted
1 muffin paper liners
*You may use all-purpose (regular) flour, however biscuits will not rise much and have a denser texture; flavors should be about identical. **Can substitute 3 packets of Sweet & Low for the sugar.
Use the cheese in the gold cardboard container. Original recipe does not say, but I would think you will want to shred it. In a 1 1/2 qt mixing bowl combine the milk, mayo, sugar, and flour.
Beat on high speed with electric mixer for almost a minute, until smooth and completely combined. Using a rubber bowl scraper, streak the dough with the cheese.
Batter should NOT be thin enough to pour; if necessary, add only enough additional flour so batter will "drop" from spoon. Drop batter into 10 paper-lined muffin tins, or a greater number of tiny muffin cups. (Muffins tend to triple in size when baked; fill lightly.)
Melt butter; mix in garlic, and brush tops of dough. You may shake 1 tsp additional cheese on each muffin if you wish. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden. Cool in pan on rack for 30 minutes.
