Cheddar garlic biscuits

My mom makes these and they are sooo yummy!!!

Cheddar Garlic Biscuits

2 cups flour

2 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1/3 cup vegetable shortening

3/4 cup milk

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1/2 cup melted butter

1/2 tsp garlic salt (estimated)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Put 1/4 cup butter on a baking sheet with some garlic powder and melt it in the preheating oven... it will melt quickly so don't forget it!!

Mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Cut the shortening into the flour mixture with a pastry blender. Add milk and mix with your hands... caution can get quite messy... handle it as least as possible! Mix the cheese in and just make your biscuits as big as you want them on the baking sheet, roll in the butter on sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until they start to get golden brown.

Melt rest of butter with garlic salt and brush onto the biscuits when they come out of the oven.
