Cheddar Drop Biscuits

Biscuits, we just love them.  I have some really good recipes for Biscuits, some are time consuming, and well worth the time.  But these Cheddar Drop Biscuits are so easy! 

I got the recipe from Lucinda Scala Quinn, she's the host of the Mad Hungry Cooking show on the Hallmark Channel.  I just love her show, she's easy, and so down to earth, and I don't have to leave the country just to find an ingredient!  Anyway, back to the biscuits, they have chives and cheddar cheese in them, and they are so easy, just drop them on the cookie sheet, no rolling out!  I made them for my family tonight, and they were YUMMO! 


    Cheddar Drop Biscuits
    2 cups flour
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1 tablespoon granulated sugar
    1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
    Pinch cayenne pepper
    6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
    8 ounces sharp cheddar, shredded
    1 1/3 cups buttermilk, well shaken
    3 tablespoons chopped chives
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees with racks in upper and lower third positions. Line two baking sheets with parchment or foil.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt, and cayenne pepper. Work butter into flour mixture with a pastry cutter or your fingers until butter is incorporated and pea-size lumps remain. Stir in cheddar, then buttermilk and chives, just until dough comes together.
  3. Using two spoons, drop 1/4 cup quantities of dough onto prepared baking sheets, spaced 2 inches apart.
  4. Bake in oven until golden brown, 12-14 minutes, rotating baking sheets onceTry them and ENJOY!
