Cheesy Drop Biscuits

Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 10-12 minutes
Yield: 6-8 biscuits

2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
2/3 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup vegetable oil

Mix all dry ingredients together. Add wet ingredients and mix to combine. Dough will be slightly dry.

Form into biscuits and bake at 450 on a baking sheet coated with nonstick cooking spray for 10-12 minutes or until browned.

Tips and Tricks
I use powdered buttermilk because it lasts longer. Follow the directions on the label for reconstitution. Don't make the biscuits too large, or they will take longer to bake.
Make It Healthier
Substitute one cup of whole wheat flour in place of all-purpose flour.
How Kids Can Help
Older kids can probably make this entire recipe. Younger kids can measure ingredients and help mix dough.
