Scallion drop biscuits with Indian spices folded in

Simple and easy to make drop biscuits filled with scallions , cumin seeds, carom seed, Italian seasoning and baked to beautiful golden. Light, buttery and delicious. Nothing better on a cold winter night, serve with hot soup and rich mushroom gravy.
