Cheddar & Herb Drop Biscuits


Today was a very special day for me.

I got to wear what I would call "real" shoes for the first time in months! 

Since I went back to work in mid-February after my foot surgery, I have had to wear running shoes every day with my dress clothes.  I even had to wear them to my friend's wedding.

And it has been awful. 

I felt the sneakers were least offensive when partially covered by pants, so I have not put on a dress since the beginning of January.

But I love skirts & dresses, so do you know how painful that has been for me?  Three whole months of ignoring probably the largest section of same-type items in my closet?

This morning, I spent so long looking at all the potential outfits I could wear that I didn't have time to stop for my usual coconut iced coffee at D&D...

...which would normally be a catastrophe, but I was so jacked up on my excitement to put on a high-waisted skirt & black boots that I didn't even need caffeine!

Not to mention it's Friday. 

And after the past two days (where it actually snowed a little bit here despite the supposed beginning of Spring) it was sunny out. 

And... I came home from work and nibbled one of these leftover biscuits from last night's dinner. 


AHHH!

Seriously - could life get any better?

Actually, maybe if the biscuits had crumbled bacon in them that might be better. 

?

Just throwing that out there.

Cheddar and Herb Drop Biscuits

  • 1 C. all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 t. baking powder
  • 1 t. white sugar
  • 1/4 t. cream of tartar
  • 1/2 t. garlic powder
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 2 t. minced, fresh parsley (or other herb of your choice)
  • 1/2 C. cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1/4 C. melted butter
  • 1/2 C. milk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar, cream of tartar, garlic powder, salt, and parsley.  Stir in butter, milk, and cheese until dry ingredients are just moistened (and cheese is evenly distributed). 

Drop batter by 1/4 C. on lightly greased cookie sheet.  Bake until golden on edges, 17-20 minutes, and serve warm.  Makes 6 biscuits.
