Easy, Cheesy, Elegant or Everyday

That’s exactly how I’d describe the Cheddar Herb Biscuits in GRIT’s Comfort Food Cookbook. After spending the weekend working the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR (and finishing up the 400 Applesauce Doughnut Holes I wrote about last week), I was looking for a no-fuss recipe to share with you. I’m the queen of the 10-minute project that really takes two hours. These tasty treats only take about 20 minutes from the time you measure your first ingredient to the time they come out of the oven. Even for me. No waiting for yeast to do its thing, no kneading, rolling or cutting. Since they’re drop biscuits, they probably won’t all be the same exact size or shape, but that’s part of their charm.

Another great thing about this recipe is that it only takes eight ingredients – all of which are probably already in your pantry or fridge.

What would you serve these with? Their herby flavor and flaky yet slightly chewy texture would make them a great sidekick for a nice steak, roast or chicken dinner, or they’d pair well with a host of soups. I could see them topped with a thick chili to make a hearty meal, too. If you’re looking for something to replace the standard rolls at your Thanksgiving meal, these guys are quick and easy. You’ll look like a rock star – and no one will have to know that you didn’t slave away all night!

The recipe makes about 1 dozen, but you could easily double or triple the recipe – there aren’t any odd measurements, or make the biscuits smaller to be used as dumplings in a soup.
