Cheddar Cheese Biscuits

Cheddar Cheese Biscuits, This is an easy drop biscuit recipe, I am all for easy!

Cheddar Cheese Biscuits

2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/3 cup butter, cold, cut into chunks
2 Tbsp canola or vegetable oil
1 heaping cup grated/shredded cheddar cheese
2/3 cup milk

For brushing on top:
3 Tbsp butter
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dried parsley flakes or 1 Tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and garlic powder.
  3. Add the cubed butter. Using a pastry cutter or a fork, cut butter into flour until it is coarse, pea-sized (doesn’t need to be fine).
  4. Add oil, grated cheddar cheese and the milk,  making sure to keep adding milk a bit at a time, just until the dough is moistened and you can no longer see any raw flour. Stir until well combined and holds together.
  5. Drop approximately 1/4 cup portions of the dough onto an un-greased cookie sheet or a Silpat using an ice cream scoop or large spoon.
  6. Bake for 15-17 minutes in a preheated oven at 400F.
  7. While biscuits are baking, melt 3 tablespoons butter is a small bowl with 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and the parsley.
  8. When biscuits come out of the oven, use a brush to spread this garlic butter over the tops of all the biscuits. Do this a few times  and use up all of the butter. Serve warm.

I have found recipes in the past using a baking mix (ex. Bisquick) but I like to make things from scratch as much as possible. I like to know what is exactly in the food I am eating and serving my family. Serve warm and fresh from the oven, if that can’t be done you can always reheat in the oven and they still taste great.
