Ingredients Needed to Make Garlic Cheese Drop Biscuits Recipe

- Baking Powder
- Garlic Powder
- Cold Butter
- Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese
- Melted Butter
Can I substitute buttermilk?
Absolutely! When I first created this recipe it was with buttermilk. I've tweaked the recipe to be made with milk, because 9 out of 10 times I don't have buttermilk on hand when I want to make these biscuits. Milk is also thinner so you don't need as much. If you substitute buttermilk, you will need to add about an extra ½ cup. You can also use your own homemade buttermilk, by adding 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar to 1 cup milk. Let the milk sit for at least 5 minutes.
How to Make Easy Garlic Cheese Drop Biscuits
Step 1: Prepare the Ingredients
First thing to do is preheat the oven to 400° and line a rimmed sheet pan with parchment paper. Then gather all your ingredients, cube the cold butter, and shred the cheese if needed. I always like to shred my own cheese, however in this recipe the already shredded cheese will work well too.
Step 2: Make the Biscuit Dough
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and garlic powder. Add the cubed butter and cut it in with a pastry blender or your fingers until it all looks like course crumbs. Stir in the shredded cheese and parsley, then add the milk and stir just until it is all combined.
Step 3: Bake Biscuits
Using a large scoop or two large spoons, scoop the dough and place 2 inches apart on baking sheet. Bake for 15-17 minutes until the tops are just starting to get golden. Brush the tops of the biscuits with melted butter.
Let biscuits cool to the touch and serve warm. They are best when served warm. However you can cool completely, reheat and serve later.
Optional Extra Garlic:
If you like a more pungent flavor of garlic, you can add another teaspoon to the biscuit dough, or you can add ¼ teaspoon to the melted butter before brushing tops of biscuits. I personally like to add more garlic powder to the biscuit dough, but I really LOVE garlic.
Can I freeze Garlic Cheese Drop Biscuits?
Yes! Let the biscuits cool completely and then place in a freezer safe air tight container or zip top bag. Label and date the container or bag. The biscuits will last 3-4 months in the freezer.
To thaw: remove from freezer at least 30 minutes before needing them.
How to reheat biscuits?
If you want to serve these biscuits warm, wrap in a single layer in aluminum foil and warm through in a 350° oven. Takes about 10-15 minutes.
