These easy cheddar drop biscuits are soft, buttery, fluffy, and irresistibly delicious! You’re only 20 minutes away from these buttery, cheesiest biscuits. Just mix ingredients, drop a spoonful of dough on the tray, and bake! Best biscuit EVER!
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (or 200-degree centigrade) and line a baking tray with parchment paper (or grease it with oil).
STEP ONE: Start by adding all-purpose flour, baking powder, kosher salt, and garlic powder to a bowl.
STEP TWO: Combine.
STEP THREE: Add chilled and cubed butter to the flour mixture.
STEP FOUR: Using your fingers or a pastry cutter mix butter into the flour mix.
STEP FIVE: Break butter into the flour mix until the mixture looks a little crumbly.
STEP SIX: In a cup whisk together whole milk and one large egg until combined.
STEP SEVEN: Pour the milk-egg mix into the flour mix.
STEP EIGHT: Add grated sharp cheddar cheese.
STEP NINE: Give it a quick mix using a rubber spatula. DO NOT OVERMIX. If there is dry flour, add a teaspoon or more milk to blend the dry ingredient fluffy.
STEP TEN: STOP mixing the dough as soon as the dough comes together. Over mixing will cause biscuits to be tough and flat.
STEP ELEVEN: Wet with water with a large spoon or cookie scoop, scoop out the dough, and drop it on a baking tray lined with parchment paper or well-greased with oil. Drop biscuits with a 2-inch space between each other.
STEP TWELVE: Bake in a pre-heated oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 8 to 10 minutes.
STEP THIRTEEN: While biscuits bake in the oven in a small bowl add melted butter, garlic powder, fresh parsley, and chives.
STEP FOURTEEN: Mix. This will be used for brushing over biscuits.
STEP FIFTEEN: Once biscuits come out of the oven, immediately brush them with butter herb and mix generously all over.
STEP SIXTEEN: Bake for 5 more minutes.
STEP SEVENTEEN: Fresh warm homemade cheddar drop biscuits are ready to be devoured.
STEP EIGHTEEN: If there is leftover butter herb mix, give your biscuits a second brush just before serving. Your biscuits will turn rich, buttery, and cheesy delicious!
