Herb and Cheddar Drop Biscuits


1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tbsp chopped chives
1 tsp chopped thyme
1 tsp crushed rosemary
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup cold butter, cubed
1/2 cup shredded old cheddar cheese
3/4 cup milk


Preheat oven to 450 degrees Farenheit. Line baking sheet with parchment paper, or grease the pan with oil. Mix flour, herbs, salt, and baking powder and soda in a large bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry cutter or two knives (or your hands) until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in cheddar. Make a well in the centre and pour in the milk. Mix with a fork until a soft, sticky dough forms. Drop heaping tablespoons of dough onto the baking sheet, making 12 biscuits. Bake until puffy and golden, about 12 minutes.
