Cheesy Biscuits

These biscuits are to die for especially when they are warm and the cheese is melted and the garlic butter is filling the air with that delicious aroma.

1 ¾ cup flour
2 ½ teas. Baking powder
¾ teas. Salt
1/3 cup shortening
½ cup grated cheddar cheese
¾ cup milk

2 Tbsp. margarine, melted
1/8 tsp. garlic powder

Heat oven to 450 degrees.
Sift dry ingredients into a mixing bowl. Cut shortening into the flour mixture until the size of peas. Add cheese and mix well. Add milk and mix only until the flour is moistened. Form mixture into a ball and place it on a lightly floured counter. Knead lightly 8 to 10 times. Roll dough out until 1 inch thick. Cut biscuits with biscuit cutter. Place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes.
Mix melted margarine and garlic powder. Brush the tops of the biscuits with butter mixture as soon as they are taken from the oven.
