This is an old recipe from my Mom – and they are equally good without cheese, or with almost any other type of cheese other than cheddar.
Cheese Drop Biscuits
1 c. flour
2 t. baking powder
4 T. butter
1 c. grated sharp cheddar
1/2 c. cold water
Combine the flour and baking powder and cut in the butter as you would for pastry – I use a pastry cutter, but a fork could work. Add the cheese, tossing to coat and then the water. Mix well and add a bit more water if needed.
Drop by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper and bake for 8 – 10 minutes at 400.
These are perfect with chili or soup but we also regularly have them for breakfast or as a snack when the girls have a friend over – they are tastiest with jam.
