Swiss Onion Drop Biscuits

We had these with the Dijon Crumb Chicken last night as well. While I would call the chicken a score, this was not. It made 2 dozen, and only about 6 got consumed between the 5 of us. I thought it would be a good recipe since it had whole wheat flour in it, so it would be a bit healthier than the usual dinner roll. But, the onions were too apparent and the children were not interested in green things in their biscuits...but I will post it for interested parties...from TOH pg 440.

Swiss Onion Drop Biscuits
2 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup wheat flour
1 tbsp sugar
3 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp onion salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup cold butter
1 cup (4 oz) shredded swiss cheese
1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions
2 eggs
3/4 cup plus 2 tbsp buttermilk

In a large bowl, combine the flours, sugar, baking powder, onion salt, and baking soda. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the cheese and onions. Combine eggs and buttermilk; stir into cheese mixture just until moistened. Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart on greased baking sheets. Bake @ 425 for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. 2 dozen.

So these were pretty good, to the grownups. I ended up freezing the rest to have with other meals, or if I make a meal for Helping Hands. If you get some of these, try to act surprised. And I will act like I just made them =)
