Red lobster: cheddar Bay biscuits

I had recently went on a date with my boyfriend to Red Lobster and while were there we had these biscuits and I really loved them except the were really salt. So later that week I was at the store saw the mix and decided to give them another try. Well this time I wasn’t disappointed. The box calls for 1/2 cup of cheese but I did a whole cup instead. They were so good that I realize with three biscuits left I forgot to take a picture. I made these with dinner and I thought the biscuits were the best part!
