Garlic Cheddar Drop Biscuits

Garlic Cheddar Drop Biscuits

Biscuits filled with cheddar cheese and green onions, these are tasty and easy, no rolling, just dropping them on the baking sheet by the spoon full! I made a garlic butter with parsley to brush on the biscuits before they bake, and right after they come out of the oven. It makes it look pretty too, with the specks of parsley all over the top.

I weighed each one, just to have them roughly the same size.

Now make the garlic butter to brush on before and after baking!

This looks like a piece of butter not melted yet, but its actually a smashed garlic clove :)

And here’s your garlic butter with parsley!

After they came out of the oven,  I brushed them again with the garlic parsley butter…..mmmmmmmmmmmm:)

And then I ate one right away…
