  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups sharp cheddar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt adjust quantity according to taste
  • 1 ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 tablespoon unsalted cold butter cubed
  • cup whole milk
  • 1 egg

For Brushing

  • 3 tablespoon unsalted butter melted
  • 1 tablespoon parsley chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chives chopped (can use green onions)
  • ¾ teaspoon garlic powder


  • 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!
