Instant garlic bread

Recipe sent by Aven:

In a small pan, gently saute 4 cloves minced garlic in 2 tbsps butter.

In a medium bowl, mix:
2.5 cups flour
4 tsps baking powder
1 tsp salt

Mix in until crumbly:
0.5 cup shortening (or oil, or butter)

1 cup milk
reserved garlic and butter
4 tbsps chopped parsley (or any other fresh herb)

Stir until just combined. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead lightly 8-10 times. Roll to desired thickness (about 1") and cut into squares, or cut out circles with a glass. Place on an ungreased baking sheet and bake in a pre-heated 425F oven for 12-15 minutes, or until risen and just turning golden brown. Makes 8-12 biscuits, depending on what size you make each one.

You can also use any pre-packaged biscuit mix, and add the garlic and herbs to it as you follow the package directions.
