Presumptions

Not being able to find a cheese drop biscuit with either the ingredients I had in the house or the measurements I could cope with I cobbled together the best I could, something that might vaguely resemble an American cheesy drop biscuit.

I thought it might be a bit presumptuous of me to call them cheese drop biscuits, so therefore they are called presumptions as they presume to be something they may not be.

They are crispy on the outside and wonderfully soft and fluffy on the inside.

Thank you to the Just A Pinchers who helped put me on the right track after last night’s disaster :)

I can think of any number of dishes I would like to enjoy these biscuits with. The chives, cheese and garlic make for a nice, savory biscuit. Delish!
