Cornmeal-Chive Drop Biscuits

“Cornmeal gives these biscuits a nice crunch,” writes Angela Buchanan from Longmont, Colorado. “Use this recipe to make drop dumplings for soups or stews, too. Just drop the dough on top, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.”

    These were really easy to make and I love that it's a smaller recipe (only 6 biscuits). Although, I do have to agree with a below comment that they were a little bland. I used unsalted butter so next time I would either use salted butter or up the salt to 1/2 tsp.

    These were easy to make and moist but seemed to lack any flavor, rather bland.
