Can i obejctively reporduce toothless foodie brand biscuits?

The intention here is to arrive at a cherried reproducible recipe …

1 c biscuit
1 c grated smoky cheddar cheese
1 T garlic powder
¼ c coconut oil
½ c milk

this batch had a bit too much milk … it was too wet and spread out.   try between ¼ c and ½ cup.

denise claimes that the cheese flavor still did not come through enough.
 

this vaiation

1 cup bisquit
2 cups grated smokey cheese
2 T garlic pwder
¼ c coconut oil
¼ c + 2T buttermilk
¼ t salt

way too cheeset – even to salty – and even too moist when cooked
and again ...

1 cup bisquick
1 ½ cup grated smokey cheese
¼ cup coconut oil
2 T garlic powder
1 small pinch salt
5 T milk

baked for 16 minutes at 400 degrees on a preheated stone



denise said they were quite cheezy enough … she still wants them to stick together better


i am concerned they seem a bit too mushey inside, especially on the bottom of the biscuite.
and even again ...

1 cup bisquick
1 cup grated smokey cheese ← back to 1 cup
¼ cup coconut oil
2 T garlic powder
1 small pinch salt ← dont need it
5 ½ T milk ← just a tad moister

baked for 18 minutes at 350 degrees on a preheated stone ← decreaseing temp, and increase time

well denise says these stuck together better and were cheesy enough.  I also notice that they stick together better if left to cool just a bit after taking them out of the oven.

google red lobster cheese biscuits best recipe – have made some & everyone loved them.
cool kewl … strangely enough i started with just such a google search several years ago.   I ended up with this one from big oven
2 1/2 cups Bisquick baking mix
1 cup Cheddar cheese; finely grated
3/4 cup Whole milk
2 tablespoons Butter
1/8 teaspoon Garlic powder
1/4 cup Butter
1/2 teaspoon Garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon Dried parsley flakes
1 dash Salt
 

Original recipe makes 12 Servings

Then i scaled the recipe down … don’t need 12 servings … and i started making it without measurements and variying according to my subjective whims.  Now i am swinging back in the other direction … prtially in response to  denies’s desire for a reliable experience,  and partially from my curiousity about my abilities to standardize and make them delicious yet uniquely particular to my kitchen.

Then too I had  some complaints (1) even with the published recipes reproducing the Red Lobster experience (google it),  (2) their biscuits were too salty for my taste, and (3) they really did not adequately express the cheese taste.  So i took it on myself to dink with both the taste, techture, and reliablity of the experience. 

Currently i have eliminated the step where salt is added to butter and then painted on the biscuite after it is baked.  I discovered, one day by forgettting that i should do it,  that i liked the buiscuits better primarially because they were not so salty. 

Then too, for no totally rational reason, i started using coconut oil instead of butter.  It does seem to work just as well. 

I am like totally interested in any specific variations you are using on any specific recipes and the results you are finding. 

Thanks for your provocative comment smug

Yep, most biscuit recipes say unsalted butter, but they include salt later. Some cheese is salty too – like parmesan.

wow that looks tasty!
i think i’ll make some more today … back off a bit more on the cheese … maybe bake it slower and longer.
