Easy drop biscuits full of cheddar cheese and fresh herbs are the reason you'll never buy store-bought again

Drop biscuits are one of the easiest recipes in the bread-making world. Mix together a few ingredients, drop it onto a baking sheet, bake up till golden brown, slather with butter, and enjoy.

It simply does not get easier than a biscuit.

What makes these biscuits so delicious is that they're made with tangy Greek yogurt, sharp cheddar cheese and lots of fresh herbs. You can use whatever herbs you love, but I used a delicious blend of thyme, rosemary and sage. Every bite tasted like fall.
