Mayo-Cheddar Cheese Drop Biscuits

It's easy, start by preheating the oven to 450 degrees.
Makes 12 biscuits with my generously-sized scoop

(10) Ingredients:

1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup Dukes Mayonnaise

2 cups self-rising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon soda
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
3/4 cup grated sharp Cheddar
1/4 stick butter, melted.

1) In a quart mixing cup, combine buttermilk and mayonnaise. Stir until completely combined and smooth.

2) In a  mixing bowl, combine these dry ingredients together using a fork or whisk:

3) Cut cheese into flour mixture until it resembles coarse cornmeal.

4) Now add the flour/cheese mixture to the milk mixture.  Stir until just incorporated.
Dough will look quite wet.

5) Use a large spoon or cookie scoop to form biscuits, dropping scoops onto a sprayed or greased cookie sheet.

6) Brush dough with melted butter and bake (450) for 10 to 14 minutes in the center of the oven. Tops will lightly brown.

Note: If you don't have buttermilk on hand, you can make a substitute. Place a Tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice in a liquid measuring cup. Add enough whole milk to bring the liquid up to the one-cup line.  Let stand for five minute and use as buttermilk.
