Cheddar Dill Drop Biscuts



Happy Fall Yall!  Today I am making chicken soup my big bear has a cold. Homemade chicken soup always makes him feel better. So I thought these bad boys were perfect for dipping and sopping. They are even better with gravy. I don't know that I will post the chicken soup recipe, doesn't everyone have one of their own? Maybe I will. Maybe I make a new variation. Let's see.....






Ingredients

FOR THE BISCUITS:
2-½ cups Baking Mix
½ teaspoons Garlic Powder
¼ teaspoons Onion Powder
⅛ teaspoons Black Pepper
4 Tablespoons Cold Butter
1 cup Grated Cheddar Cheese
¼ cups Fresh Chopped Dill
¾ cups Cold Milk
_____
FOR THE GARLIC BUTTER:
2 Tablespoons Butter, Melted
½ teaspoons Garlic Powder
¼ teaspoons Dried Parsley Flakes
1 pinch Salt

Preparation Instructions

1. Preheat your oven to 400ºF.
2. Combine baking mix with garlic powder, onion powder, pepper, then cold butter in a medium bowl using a pastry cutter or a large fork. You don’t want to mix too thoroughly. There should be small chunks of butter in there that are about the size of peas. Add cheddar cheese, dill and milk. Mix by hand until combined, but don’t over mix.
3. Drop approximately ¼-cup portions of the dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet using an ice cream scoop.
4. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until the tops of the biscuits begin to turn light brown.
5. When you take the biscuits out of the oven, prepare the garlic butter. Melt the butter is a small bowl in your microwave. Stir in the garlic powder, dried parsley flakes, and salt. Use a brush to spread this garlic butter over the tops of all the biscuits. Use up all of the butter.
Makes one dozen biscuits.

Enjoy!

  2. I needed a good recipe that uses dill. I have a big jar but not that many recipes. Dill in a cheesy drop biscuit sounds delicious.
