Pimento Cheese Drop Biscuits- these savory biscuits are easy to make and have all the components of pimento cheese. Perfectly light and tender with just the right amount of cheese flavor.
- White Lily Self-Rising Flour– White Lily is the preferred flour for making southern biscuits. It is more finely ground and made with soft winter wheat which contains less gluten. It makes really soft and tender biscuits. Self-rising flour has baking powder and soda added so you get a perfect rise in your biscuits.
- Sugar– just a touch.
- Black Pepper– adds another savory note.
- Cayenne Pepper– for just a touch of heat.
- Mayonnaise– used instead of butter.
- Sharp Cheddar Cheese– they wouldn’t be pimento cheese biscuits without some cheddar cheese.
- Pimentos– be sure to drain them well.
What I Love About Drop Biscuits
Drop biscuits are so easy to make. No need to roll out the dough and use a biscuit cutter. Just mix everything together in a bowl and “drop” the batter on a baking sheet.
How To Serve Pimento Cheese Drop Biscuits
They are great slathered with butter or drizzled with honey. To spice them up a little, slather them with hot pepper jelly. Cut them in half and stuff with sliced ham or turkey for a fun biscuit sandwich.
Once you mix the batter together, get it into the oven as quickly as possible.
Don’t overmix the batter or your biscuits will be tough.
Best eaten right away but can be rewarmed in a 325 degree oven.
