Cheddar Dill Drop Biscuits (A Forgotten Recipe)

How is everyone's week going so far? Mine is hectic as usual. My son started playing golf and it has overtaken my life. But it's a great thing! 
We all know those cheddar bay biscuits right? Well these are primarily the same thing with the addition of a few ingredients and dill. Not only did they come out better they were just different, which I like! 


2-½ cups Baking Mix (I use Bisquick)
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
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.
