Cheesy Drop Biscuits

I wanted to capture the flavor of cheese biscuits from a popular restaurant. So I took my favorite buttermilk biscuit recipe and added to it.

    These were very good. I didn't have buttermilk on hand, so I soured some milk with vinegar. My family really liked them.

    These biscuits were very easy to make. I found this recipe on here for my 7th grade Home and Careers class to make for part of their biscuit lab. The kids really enjoyed the recipe. I had them make them smaller so that there would be more, but other than that, they followed the recipe exactly. If I were to make them at home, I think I would add garlic salt to the tops before baking them for a little extra flavor. Other than that, I thought that they were very good.

    This has become a favorite in my family! They are soooooo easy to make and delicious! These are absolutely fool-proof and that's coming from someone who has found a way to mess up just about every recipe!

    I struggle with fatigue and this recipe was very quick and easy. They disappeared before lunch was even heated and the comment was that they sure tasted like those you get in a certain restaurant. Yum!
