If making biscuits is intimidating to you, these Cheddar Drop Biscuits are your answer! They're easier to make than rolled and cut biscuits, and the cheddar cheese adds moisture and cheesy goodness.
10ozby weight all purpose flour(2 cups measured)
1/2tspold bay seasoning
1/2cupcold unsalted buttercubed
6ozextra sharp cheddar cheesegrated
About 30 chivessliced
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
In a food processor, pulse to combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, garlic powder, old bay seasoning, and salt.
Add the cold butter cubes and pulse the mixture about 10 times to break down the butter into small pieces and incorporate it into the seasoned flour. There should still be pea sized pieces of butter.
Add the grated cheddar and pulse 2-3 times to distribute.
Dump everything out into a large mixing bowl, then toss in the chives.
Pour the milk into the bowl, using a spatula to toss the ingredients around as you pour. Think of this more as tossing to distribute the liquid, rather than stirring. In order to prevent our biscuits from getting tough, we want to use a light hand and only mix until the dry and wet ingredients are combined.
Take a cookie scoop and portion out 1/4 cup scoops of the biscuit mixture onto a baking sheet (you should have 12 scoops).
