Sometimes when you take a bite of something an involuntary holler just happens. That definitely was the case with these Sour Cream, Cheddar and Chive Drop Biscuits. Straight out of the oven they are over-the-top good, with a crunchy outside and tender inside, and a perfect balance of savory flavors. Of course, rewarmed these biscuits illicit a few oohs and aahs as well.

Plus, these biscuits could not be easier to make. Really. These savory biscuits are about as easy as it gets when it comes to biscuit making. Which could be dangerous because you may find yourself whipping a batch (or three) of these up at the drop of hat, or biscuit, shall we say. These drop biscuits remind me a little bit of of those mini drop biscuits from that crustacean restaurant chain. You know the one I’m talking about only. It rhymes with “bread brobster.” Yeah, like those, only better because you can make them right at home.

Sour Cream, Cheddar and Chive Drop Biscuits Recipe notes:

  • The recipe below makes 14 (2-3”) biscuits when using 1/4 cup “drops” of dough. Adjust “drop” size and monitor cook time for smaller biscuits. Of course you could go bigger too. 😉
  • Baking parchment makes life so much easier when baking just about anything, plus I think it helps these biscuits develops a nice subtle crust on the bottoms.
  • I always keep a couple of sticks of butter in the freezer just for biscuits. They can quickly be grated for use in biscuits and pastry dough, which helps quicken things along quite a bit. The need to “cut in” the butter isn’t really necessary as the little bits of butter quickly and evenly mix in properly.
