Cheddar Onion Drop Biscuits
August 08, 2011

I've tried a couple of biscuit recipes that use buttermilk baking mix and they were excellent. What I found, however, by making THIS recipe is that the mix doesn't really shave any time off the preparation nor is the process necessarily simplified. These biscuits were mixed and on the baking sheet in no time. I wanted the freshness and color of green onion, so I chose to use that instead of the dried minced onion. I found I needed more buttermilk to bring the dough together, so since I had none left I used cream. They were perfectly baked and golden brown at 12 minutes. Once out of the oven I brushed them with melted garlic butter which gave them a boost of flavor as well as an attractive sheen. The Parmesan is a distinct flavor in the biscuits, so the title is just a little misleading. If you don't like Parmesan, you're not likely to care for these biscuits. They're SO pretty - very inviting. I appreciated their larger size compared to other drop biscuit recipes. They’re crusty on the outside, buttery and moist on the inside. Flavorful and just delicious. They’re just what I was after to accompany our soup tonight and I’m looking forward to enjoying one with some scrambled eggs in the morning too.
