Cheddar and Green Onion Drop Biscuits

Easy, quick, and scrumptious biscuits for some people (like me) who are too lazy to bring out the rolling pin and cookie cutter.

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2/3 cup shredded sharp cheddar 
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, sugar, cream of tartar, and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center, add milk all at once. Add cheese and chopped green onions. Stir until the dough is well incorporated. 
  • Drop a generous tablespoon of dough onto the prepared baking sheet, repeat with the remaining dough, keep 1 or 2-inch space between them. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden. Serve warm.
Make about 12 biscuits


  1. Scrumptious scones! I don´t think you can ever go wrong with green onions and cheese in a biscuit

  2. My family liked these. This was an easier version of the cheddar green onion scones I usually do. However I think next time I will do a smidge less sugar and a bit more flour. Thanks for the recipe!
