For a simple biscuit recipe – this has to be about the best.
I was planning on having stew for supper and thought hot biscuits would be great to have along with it. This Drop Biscuits Recipe looked like it was simple to put together, and I had all the ingredients on hand, so I decided to give it a try. It was just my wife and me for supper, and between the 2 of us, there wasn’t a crumb left over.
The next time you need a quick biscuit recipe gives this on a try.
Quick and Simple Drop Biscuits Recipe
- 1 stick cold unsalted butter (cut into ¼ inch pieces – I threw them in the freezer for a few minutes to get them good and cold.)
- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- ¾ cups whole milk ( I used some cream I had left over from the holidays and mixed it with 2% milk.)
- Preheat oven to 400F.
- In a large bowl whisk together all the dry ingredients. Fold the butter pieces in and using your fingers or a pastry blender work the butter into the dry ingredients to form a pea-like texture. (a food processor makes quick work for this)
- Add the milk and stir until just moist.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, or lightly spray with cooking spray. Using ¼ cup measuring cup place dough on baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake until biscuits are golden brown, about 20 minutes, let cool a little bit and serve warm.
