Garlic Cheddar Biscuits

(Please forgive the bad photography)
I love, love, LOVE the yummy, delicious Cheddar Biscuits at Red Lobster! I crave them every so often. So I attempted to create my own version. I whipped them up to accompany Beef Stew (and add a little pizazz to a dreary leftover meal). They were a pretty close replica to the originals (and a whole bunch cheaper)!

Garlic Cheddar Biscuits
(makes 15 biscuits)

3 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
3/4 cup butter flavor shortening
1 1/4 cups of milk
1 teaspoon garlic powder or 1/2 tablespoon minced garlic
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
6 tablespoon butter, melted

Sift flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and cream of tartar. Cut in shortening until coarse crumbs form. Stir in milk, garlic, and cheese until combined. Batter is a little bit sticky. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto a greased cookie sheet. Smooth tops of biscuit with wet fingers to avoid rough spots when baked. Bake at 450 for 10 - 14 minutes until golden brown on top. Drizzle melted butter over biscuits while still hot and allow to soak in .
