Another go at Gluten-Free Garlic Cheese rolls.. but doing biscuits

It is Christmas eve. In our home, it is tradition to attend our candlelight service at our church, then come home and eat a Turkey dinner, and then open gifts. We do stockings Christmas day, because Santa comes Christmas morning. It has been that way since the day I was born and I am passing on the tradition to my kids. I basically make everything for dinner at Christmas that I do on Thanksgiving. You can see the menu here.
I wanted to make a better version of my garlic rolls for Taylor. This is a different attempt for my daughter. She loves loves loves bread. She liked the other version of my gluten free garlic rolls, but I am going for LOVE. Trying biscuits this time.

Garlic Cheese Biscuits
1 ¾ cups gluten-free flour mix
1 tsp xanthan gum
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking powder
5 tbsp butter
1 cup milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Topping
2 tbsp butter, melted
3 clovea garlic, minced
Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a large bowl, sift together flour, salt, and baking powder.

Cut in butter until mixture has pea-sized flour-coated butter pieces throughout.

Make a well in the center of the mixture. Add the milk and cheese to the well and stir to combine.

Drop batter by spoonfuls onto a greased baking sheet or a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake in preheated oven (450)  for 12 to 15 minutes until lightly browned.
While biscuits are baking, melt butter and mix with minced garlic and let it sit in the hot butter to take away a little bit of the bite. Pour over the top and serve.
