Cheese & Herb Drop Biscuits

These biscuits seriously taste a little like Red Lobster Biscuits.  But they are better! My family makes these disappear when I make these. They are even good reheated the next day. {of course if there are any left.}Sorry for the picture. It is from my phone.

Cheese & Herb Drop Biscuits
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons shortening
3 tablespoons butter, cold
1 cup buttermilk
1 1/4-2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese {depends on how much cheese you want}

Buttery Topping:
3 tablespoons melted butter
1/4 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
pinch of salt
In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, garlic powder and salt. Cut in shortening and butter until coarse crumbs are formed. Lightly mix grated cheese in. Mix in buttermilk just until moist. DO NOT OVER MIX {dry spots here and there are ok}. Drop the biscuits onto a greased or lined baking sheet.  Bake at 425 degrees for 12-14 minutes, until browned and golden. While biscuits are baking, in a small bowl combine butter, parsley, garlic powder and salt. Right when the biscuits come out of the oven, brush the butter/herb mixture over the biscuits evenly
