Nonstick cooking spray, for the baking sheet

2 cups all-purpose flour 

1 tablespoon baking powder 

1 tablespoon sugar 

1 teaspoon garlic powder 

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into small cubes and chilled 

1 1/2 cups freshly grated sharp Cheddar

2 tablespoons minced fresh curly parsley 

1 1/4 cups buttermilk 

Flakey sea salt, such as Maldon 


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Grease a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, garlic powder and salt in a large bowl. Add butter to mixture and use a pastry cutter or two knives to blend until the mixture resembles a coarse meal. Stir in cheese and parsley. Add buttermilk and stir until just combined.
  3. Use a large ice cream scoop to drop biscuits onto the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with flakey sea salt. Bake until golden brown, 15 to 18 minutes. Serve immediately.
