Cheddar Drop Biscuits


  • 2 C. sifted flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tarter
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 c. shortening or butter or canned butter
  • 1 C. shredded sharp cheddar
  • 1 C. milk
Sift flour.  Measure flour and sift again into bowl with baking powder, salt, cream of tarter and sugar. Add shortening or butter and cut in with wire whisk or other pastry blender.  Add cheese and stir.  Add milk and stir quickly with wooden spoon until blended.  Depending on the humidity you may not need all of the milk.  It should be a very thick batter that clings to the spoon and holds its shape. Drop by large spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. and bake 11-13 minutes at 450° or till golden brown and baked through.  Brush with melted butter if desired.  Serve warm with Fish Chowder or any soup of your choice.
