Cheesy Biscuits

oops....forgot to post recipes last night.  So sorry.....   

But then I got to thinking this morning....I've only made the cheesy biscuits (see recipe below).  Not sure how the other recipes will turn out.  Let's wait and see before posting, OK?? 

Cheesy Biscuits

1 cup almond flour*
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 Tblsp baking powder
4 egg whites
3 Tblsp butter (cut into small pieces) 
6 Tblsp shredded gouda** cheese
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp white pepper
1/8 tsp italian seasoning
1 Tblsp melted butter
1/8 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp dried parsley

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Grease a muffin pan.  In a large bowl, beat egg whites until stiff. In a separate medium bowl, mix the almond flour, baking powder, salt, and spices. Cut in the butter until you have pea-sized pieces.  Gently fold into the whites.  Very gently fold in the shredded cheese.  Spoon the dough into your muffin tin.  
For the topping, melt the butter and stir in the salt and parsley.  Using a pastry brush, brush this mixture over the tops of your biscuits.  (This really makes them taste like Red Lobster's Cheddar Bay Biscuits!)   Bake for 11-15 minutes until tops are golden brown.  Makes 8 biscuits.

* I have found that using my home made almond flour works the best.  Here's how to make your own:  You can always use Bob's Red Mill Almond Flour available from my amazon store

**You can use other hard cheeses like cheddar, but I have found that gouda gives the best flavor.
