Cheddar Dijon Biscuits

Cheddar Dijon Biscuits

Biscuits are a simple solution for filling out a meal. These biscuits have a delicately crusted exterior surrounding a melt-in-your mouth fluffy interior of Cheddar cheese, accented by parsley and Dijon mustard. They taste especially good when made with a sharp aged Cheddar.

These are soooo good! If you don't make any other recipe, make this one! Brought a double batch of these up to my son's family; there wasn't even a crumb left. Thank you for sharing!
