Cottage Cheese Biscuits

These drop biscuits are something I make at least once a week. They are super easy, fast and perfect for serving with soup, stew and chili. This recipe also doubles really well.
The recipe is from the Better Homes and Gardens New Baking Book which is one of my very favorite cookbooks... I use it ALL THE TIME.

2 cups flour(I use half whole wheat and half unbleached)
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup low-fat cottage cheese
2/3 cups milk
2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onions
OR
1-2 tablespoons of your favorite herbs(I often use dill and they turn out great)

Grease a cookie sheet and preheat oven to 425^.
In a medium mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside.
In a small mixing bowl combine cottage cheese, milk and chives(or herbs). Add cottage cheese mixture to the dry mix and stir until just moistened.
Drop dough by generous tablespoons onto baking sheet. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden. Serve warm.
makes 12 yummy biscuits.

These biscuits are SO good! I never make biscuits because I hate that bisquick-y, regular buttermilk version. This recipe is totally replacing all of those and it's easy and quick, too! Thanks for sharing!
