Cheesy Garlic Drop Biscuits

Our friend was having us over for dinner and she was making a Chicken Stew to fit this cold front that we are having at the moment. I decided I would make some kind of bread roll to accompany the meal. Then I came across a biscuit recipe which would accompany the stew perfectly. I haven't had what the US calls a biscuit in a long time! In the UK, a biscuit is a cookie which would not go well with stew at all. A US biscuit is closely related to a UK scone, but the US biscuit has more of a fluffy texture and typically served with a savory meal. I had no idea that making the biscuits from scratch was so easy! I see a lot more drop biscuits in my future. This recipe turned out great and you can really adjust the flavors to what you would like. Try this one out!

Recipe inspired by The Cooking Photographer
2 cups plain flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp crispy onions
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dried basil flakes
3/4 shredded strong cheddar cheese
2/3 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil

For brushing on the baked biscuits:
2 tbsp butter, melted
1/2 tsp dried basil flakes
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Preheat oven to 240C/475F and line a baking tray with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, crispy onions, garlic powder, dried basil, and cheese until all ingredients are thoroughly mixed up. Add in the milk and vegetable oil into the powder mix and combine until the dough readily leaves the sides of the bowl. Scoop the dough with a 1/4 cup size cookie scoop and drop 2 inches apart on your prepared baking tray. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly golden brown on top. Once out of the oven, immediately brush the melted butter mixture over the biscuits. Serve hot.
