Here’s a really good recipe to make – it’s a basic drop biscuit recipe but I’ve thrown in some old cheddar and a little garlic powder. So, if you want plain biscuits, take those two items out. It’s a big recipe – I made small biscuits here (for a potluck) and I got about 45 biscuits (about 3 inch diameter after baking). Alternatively, you may want big, fat drop biscuit and you can go right ahead. Adjust your baking times accordingly. These are fast and so easy.
Quick Cheesy Drop Biscuits
makes about 20 large or 40 mini biscuits
4Tbsp granulated sugar
2 cups milk
2 Tbsp melted butter
4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
3 tsp cream of tartar
2 cups shredded old cheddar
1 tsp garlic powder (optional)
*additional melted butter to brush on tops
Preheat oven to 425F. Prepare baking sheets with parchment paper or silpats.
Mix 1 cup of the milk with the eggs and sugar until combined.
Add the remaining cup of milk and melted butter.
Mix dry ingredients together, stirring in shredded cheese and garlic powder. Add to milk mixture. Stir until just combined. Dough should be wet and sticky.
Drop blobs of dough on baking sheets. Bake 7-10 minutes for small, 12-15 minutes for large or until bottoms are lightly browned. Brush with
melted butter, if desired. Cool slightly, these are best enjoyed warm.
