Cheddar Drop Biscuits

These are so easy and quick to make, and kids can defenitely help making them too.  It doesn’t take long for them to dissapear either!  In the photo I used dried dill, but they are wonderful with the chives or pepper too.  And remember, just like with the baking powder biscuits, you want you butter very cold so you get a nice texture.

2 cups flour
1 T baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter or margarine (COLD!)
1 cup milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives, or 1 T dried dill weed, or 1 tsp black pepper

Mix flour, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl.
Cut butter in with a pastry blender until lumps are pea-sized.
Add cheese and chives and stir in.  Then add milk and stir to combine.

Drop by spoonfulls onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 450 degrees for 8-12 minutes or until golden brown.  Makes 18.
