Scallion & Cheddar Drop Biscuits - Vegan

Total Time

Veganized from Gourmet Magazine. These were fantastic! Made for St. Patrick's Day 2012. They turned out fluffy and flaky and were so simple. I used Daiya brand vegan Cheddar cheese shreds, and reduced the amount of cheese to 1 full cup (instead of 1 1/2, which was in the regional recipe) I also used my Pampered Chef Large cookie scoop to make the drop biscuits puffy and even!

These were really good and easy to make, lots of flavor. Only change I would cook a little less as they were a little overdone at 18 minutes.
