“Fluffy drop biscuits adapted from The Carefree Cook but with cheddar and jalapeños. I subbed sour cream last time I made them because that's what I had and they still came out really good. Cooking time was about 5 mins less for me. You can add anything you want to these biscuits. Sometimes I put in salty pastrami or olives for my hubby.”
