Note: This recipe appears in the WW Family Meals Cookbook. These biscuits are a different take on the cheddar cheese biscuits I usually make. These biscuits are made with sour cream and chopped scallion. The key to making these biscuits delicious is using extra-sharp cheddar cheese. Cheddar always makes food taste better.
