Drop Biscuits With A Kick

Last week, we celebrated my husbands birthday and when we have that celebration, it calls for his favorite meal. I wanted to make hot rolls to go with his birthday dinner, but quickly realized I was out of yeast...and did not have a vehicle to make a quick trip to the store. I improvised and in the end, was glad I did. I made drop biscuits from a recipe found in the vintage recipe tin I purchased not long ago. Decided to changed it up a bit and hoped they turned out tasty. They were a hit and very easy to make.

Drop Biscuits with a kick


1 cup flour
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon cream of tarter
2 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter, softened at room temperature
1/2 cup milk, I used 2% milk
1/2 cup cheese ( I used garlic cheddar and a very generous 1/2 cup at that)
1 1/2 Tablespoons Italian seasoning

How To:

Mix dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, cream of tarter, italian seasoning , sugar, salt and cheese by stirring in a bowl. Add the butter and mix until it forms coarse crumbs. Add the milk and only stir until mixed, don't over stir. (over stirring caused hard biscuits) Drop by spoonfuls onto greased baking sheet. (I used parchment paper on my pan) Bake at 450 degrees for about 15 minutes or until puffed and golden. Brush tops with butter is optional.

These were really good, easy and fast! Nothing like that combination when you are fixing a large meal and at the last minute want to add hot rolls to the table, but don't have all you need in your pantry to do that! Let me know if you try me, they were yummy!
