Cheddar Drop Biscuits

Cheddar Drop Biscuits

These are so easy! Whip them up quickly and bake while you set the table for dinner. Perfect for dunking into soups, chili and stews. A warm biscuit with butter? Um, yes please!

Servings: 10
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 3/4 tsp fine sea salt
  • 3/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/3 cup cold butter cut into cubes
  • 1 cup (packed) grated old or smoked cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup milk any type
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease baking sheet or line with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk together flours, baking powder, sugar, salt, garlic powder and thyme in a large mixing bowl.

  3. Using pastry blender, two knives, or hands, gently cut and mix butter into flour mixture, until it resembles coarse crumbs.

  4. Add cheese and milk to flour mixture, stirring in with a fork until a ragged moist dough forms. Don't overmix.

  5. Drop biscuit dough by 1/4 cup (approx.) scoops onto prepared baking sheet. You should get 10-12 biscuits.

  6. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 10 minutes before serving.
