Cheese Filled Biscuits~ Copycat Abram's Hoop Cheese Biscuit

2 cups self-rising flour
1/3 cup  butter flavor shortening
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dry or Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon sugar
Parmesan Cheese
melted butter
Cheddar cheese(I use local  artisan mild brick) cut in chunks about 1 1/2 " in size 
PREHEAT oven to 425 degrees.
COMBINE flour , salt, onion/garlic powder, mustard, sugar and shortening with pastry blender. Add buttermilk 1/2 at a time; mix with spoon or hands until dough forms in a ball. Knead just until smooth, adding more buttermilk or more flour if needed. Don’t overwork dough.
TAKE a piece of dough I use generous ice cream scoop full to keep them uniform, so they bake evenly. Flatten the dough a little bit in your hand and place a piece of cheese in the middle. Fold dough up over cheese to cover. Roll dough just enough to form into a smooth ball.  Flatten a little bit on top and place on parchment paper or  a greased cookie sheet .
PLACE pan in middle rack of  oven . Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden. Brush each biscuit with melted butter and turn on the broiler for about 30 seconds at the end of baking time for biscuits to brown... Remove from oven and top with Parmesan cheese..Let cool 5 minutes before eating...ENJOY!
