Olive Oil Drop Biscuits


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives, finely chopped
  • 1 cup milk (any kind you prefer)
  • 1/3 cup Black Pepper Garlic Infused Olive Oil


  1. Preheat Oven & Prepare Baking Sheet: Start by preheating your oven to 425°F (220°C) and lining a baking sheet with parchment paper or greasing it lightly.

  2. Combine Dry Ingredients: In a large bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, black pepper, and garlic powder if using. Then, stir in the grated Parmesan cheese and finely chopped chives, ensuring these ingredients are well distributed.

  3. Incorporate Wet Ingredients: Make a well in the center of your dry mixture to pour in the milk and olive oil. Stir everything together with a fork or spatula just until the mixture is combined. Remember, the dough should be a bit sticky and lumpy, so try not to overmix.

  4. Form and Bake Biscuits: Use a spoon or cookie scoop to drop portions of the dough onto your prepared baking sheet, aiming for about 12 biscuits. Bake in the preheated oven for about 12-15 minutes, or until the biscuits have turned golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean from the center.

  5. Cool and Serve: Allow the biscuits to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool further. These biscuits are most enjoyable when served warm, offering a crispy exterior with a soft, fluffy interior.

Time to Enjoy!
