Kel’s Easy Cheesy Cheddar-Garlic Drop Biscuits

Kels' cheddar garlic drop biscuits

These cheddar-garlic drop biscuits are so easy to make – just a handful of ingredients, minimal prep time, about 10 minutes in the oven, and Viola! you have warm, delicious homemade biscuits that go great as a side to a variety of soups, stews, chilis, and other main dishes.

I prefer smaller biscuits and usually make a dozen at a time. If you want larger biscuits, just divide the dough into larger spoonfuls. I also like to cook these on a baking stone, which keeps the bottoms of the biscuits from turning too brown.

Ingredients (makes 9-12 biscuits)
