A family favorite, these homemade cheddar garlic drop biscuits are easy to make and are full of garlic buttery goodness!
When fall rolls around I turn from craving salads to craving soups and breads. Okay, who am I kidding? I crave bread all year long, but there is just something so comforting about fall. The cooler weather, changing colors, and cozy feeling from comfort foods.
I made a big batch of cheddar garlic drop biscuits for the family the other day to go with dinner. Have you tried these before?
They are to die for and literally melt in your mouth. They are quick and easy to make too! Cheddar garlic drop biscuits are so delicious with a big bowl of soup or pasta. The perfect weeknight recipe when you don’t have time to make dinner rolls.
The basic recipe for the biscuit dough is from the Pioneer Woman and I add the cheddar and garlic powder (and melted butter!) for perfection. The result yields 18 garlic, buttery, biscuits that are better than the ones at Red Lobster.

adapted from The Pioneer Woman
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 sticks cold butter, cut into pieces
1 3/4 cups whole milk
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
Topping: 1/4 c. butter, melted
3/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Add the butter and cut into the dry ingredients with a pastry cutter. Stir in milk and cheese just until dough comes together making sure to not over mix. Using a large spoon, drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto baking trays and bake until nice golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Brush with melted butter/garlic/herb mixture after you remove them from the oven. Makes 18. Serve them hot with dinner and make sure to save a few for tomorrow’s lunch!
What goes with a delicious left over garlic and cheddar biscuit? Baked potato soup, of course!
Tip: Like most baked goods, they are best eaten on the first day, but these can easily be reheated in the microwave for 5-8 seconds the next day and are just as delicious!
