Cheddar-Scallion Drop Biscuits

These rustic Cheddar-scallion biscuits are perfect to serve alongside soup on a cold day. I find that these biscuits are better when they are cooled slightly than straight out of the oven.

12 biscuits


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ¼ teaspoon mustard powder

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 5 tablespoons cold butter, cut into pieces

  • ¾ cup shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped scallions

  • ¾ cup plain yogurt

  • cup milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. Stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, garlic powder, mustard powder, pepper, and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal. Mix in Cheddar cheese and scallions. Stir in yogurt and milk.

  3. Spoon 1/4-cup mounds of dough 2 inches apart onto an ungreased baking sheet.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden, 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
