Goat Cheese and Herb Drop Biscuits

I have been in a biscuit frenzy. When creating recipes it sort of works like that. I see something seasonal or think about something I want to eat. In this case it started with the Sour Cream Chive drop biscuits that I made for my birthday and demoed on the Jason Show and morphed into adding the Humble Goat Cheese instead of Sour Cream and I am pretty sure Ill end up at Strawberry Short Cake drop biscuits in the next month. Strawberries, blueberries, peaches, and cherries make excellent biscuit and fruit dessert combinations.

Drop biscuits are easy and require no rolling because you drop them by spoonful on the pan. Cheese, bacon, herbs, onion, and chives can all be mixed with great success. Try a cinnamon drop biscuit and glazing it with frosting or sprinkling vanilla sugar before baking for a sweet versus savory route. The Humble Goat has such wide varieties of Goat Cheese that just by changing the flavors, you could have:

  • Spicy with Jalapeno 
  • Herby with Humble Goat garden Herb goat cheese
  • Seasonal with Cranberry or Blueberry Goat Cheese 
  • Sweet with Honey or Chocolate Chip Cannoli Goat cheese and some added chocolate chips
  • Pumpkin Spice in the Fall or Key Lime as a base for Strawberry Shortcakes in the Summer.

However, you make your drop biscuits, just make them and get started on your flavor combinations, or consider gifting a basket to a coworker or neighbor with some fresh rhubarb jam.
