    Jamilahs_Kitchen's Note:

    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.

      Delicious recipe! It does take some time to make but it is well worth it!<br/><br/>Bonus: Froze the leftovers and followed the warm up instructions - they were possibly better than fresh out of the oven!

      A lovely recipe for biscuits with a bit of spunk. I had to use jarred jalapeno in place of the fresh but they still turned out very well and they taste wonderful. As easy as a plain biscuit but more lively. They were served with Simple Veggie Burgers and Cilantro-Lime Coleslaw. :D
