Biscuits - Their not for breakfast anymore

Most of the time my huband is a trooper when leftovers are on the menu...Somestimes he even loves them and looks forward to them.

Until he isn't...

Then there is the inevitable:

Hubby:  "Can't we just order a pizza?" which he says ever so delicately.
Me: ????

So sometimes I have to dress it up a little so he feels there is a new ingredient is in the mix... Biscuits are a great way to do this. Cheddar and dill are only a bonus. And the fact that these are drop biscuits are even better because there isn't rolling and cutting out of the biscuit dough. You just drop them on the cookie sheet.

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tbsp dried dill
  1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
 2/3 cup milk
1 egg

In a bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a bowl, whisk milk and egg. Stir into crumb mixture just until moistened. Add cheddar and dill. Drop by heaping spoonfuls 2 in. apart onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 450 degrees F for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.


  1. Could you clarify about the first five ingredients because you list the chedder and dill among the first five but then you say to add those later.


  2. If you look above the amounts for the ingredients are above the directions.

  3. Sorry, long day. I really enjoy your blog. Thanks-

  4. No worries! I'm there with you! Thanks so much!
