Makeover Cheddar Biscuits

These biscuits are supposed to taste like Red Lobster’s Cheddar Bay Biscuits. I have never had one of those, so I can’t really tell you if it’s true or not, but yeah, these were good! This recipe supposedly makes about 15 biscuits, and I didn’t need that many, so I halved it. I realized I didn’t have any cake flour, so I called a neighbor to hopefully borrow some, and she didn’t have any. But, she did suggest googling how to make my own! And I did! And it is easy! I used vegan shredded cheddar in these, and they turned out just fine. Halving the recipe gave me 7 biscuits, and they were all gone in no time.
