Cheddar Garlic drop Biscuits

Birthday celebration dinner, relaxed chitchat, and shrimp cocktails. Clam chowders and a bread basket all covered with white linens at our table. It opens to reveal these delicious looking biscuits, hot and soft and buttery and all resolve breaks at the sight of these savory delicacies. We all loved them so much that I had to re-create these beauties at home.
A type of quick bread, these savory biscuits are easy and quick to make. Just scoop the batter onto a baking sheet and bake them till they are crispy and golden on the outside and soft inside. Cheese and herbs add a whole lot of flavor making then delicious and addicting. 

These beauties are very versatile and can be served at any time of day. 
  • The perfect accompaniment to a hearty bowl of soup or stew.
  • Awesome served with a main dish salad.
  • Delicious alongside your choice of eggs in the morning.
  • Fabulous for high tea with sandwiches and cake.
