Cheddar Dill Drop Biscuits
Quick and easy drop biscuits filled with cheddar cheese, fresh dill and topped with a garlic dill butter. These biscuits are perfect for serving along side your favourite soup or stew.
- 2 1/2 Cups all purpose flour
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 Cup salted butter very cold
- 1 Cup shredded cheddar cheese approximately 4 oz
- 1/2 Cup fresh dill chopped
- 1 large egg lightly beaten
- 1 Cup milk
- 1/4 Cup salted butter melted
- 1/2 tsp granulated garlic
- 2 Tbsp fresh dill chopped
Pre-heat oven to 400°F
In a large bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt.
Cut butter into cubes and add to the flour. Using a pastry blender or fork, cut the butter into the dry ingredients until it resembles coarse crumbs.
Stir in the shredded cheese and chopped dill.
Add the beaten egg and milk and stir just until combined. It's ok if it feels a bit wet as we are dropping these biscuits, not rolling.
Drop biscuits by heaping spoonfuls (about 1/4 cup each) onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or lightly sprayed with non-stick spray leaving about an inch of space between them to rise.
Place the biscuites into the oven for 20-22 minutes until risen and lightly golden.
Once you remove the biscuits from the oven mix the melted butter, granulated garlic and 2 tbsp of fresh dill in a small bowl. Brush the melted butter over the biscuits before serving.
