Cheese and Garlic Buttermilk Biscuits

This recipe came from TheSistersCafe website.  Maybe not a super healthy option but SO YUMMY!  My kids gobble these up really fast - goodness, so do I! :)  I make them in my food processor to make it even easier since I really don't like cutting in the butter by hand.

1/2 cup butter (1 stick), cold
2 cups flour
1 Tb sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
about 3/4 cup buttermilk
2 Tb butter, melted
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp parsley flakes

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Cut butter into flour mixture using pastry blender or crisscrossing 2 knives, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in cheese then stir in enough buttermilk so dough leaves the sides of the bowl. Turn dough onto lightly floured surface and knead very lightly until dough forms a soft ball, about 10 times. Do not overwork the dough! The less you handle the dough, the more fluffy your biscuits. Roll or pat 1/2 inch thick. Cut with floured 2 1/2 inch biscuit cutter. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Mix together melted butter, garlic salt and parsley flakes. Brush the tops of the warm biscuits with the garlic butter and serve hot.
