This is probably the best biscuit recipe ever. I was lazy and used a garlic butter spread at the end but otherwise followed it exactly and I will make this one a million times for sure.

My husband loved these! They are so quick and easy! He likes them almost as much as the red lobster version. Nice twist with the pesto!

These were easy to make and really good! I even skipped the melted butter step and just added garlic powder to the mixture. Kids liked them too!
