simple drop biscuits

These biscuits are perfect for when you want to add a little something special to your weekend breakfast.  They come together quickly and are delicious fresh out of the oven.  To be honest I wouldn't make them and have them sit out for awhile- they're best consumed warm and on the spot.

The recipe hails from "Mad Hungry," a cookbook I was given from a good family friend.  The cookbook is all about feeding "men and boys" something I'll be hopefully getting really good at. I'd make these again soon and on a whim.  You should follow those instructions as well.

{Ingredients You'll Need}

  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 6 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter cut into small pieces
  • 3/4 - 1 cup milk
{Recipe thanks to Mad Hungry}
  • Preheat oven to 450 and line a baking sheet.
  • In a bowl whisk together the dry ingredients then cut in the butter with a pastry cutter until crumbs appear.  Add in the milk and allow yourself to add a little more so that you're able to get the batter to a good "drop" consistency.
  • Don't over mix and simply drop the biscuits onto your baking sheet then bake for 13-15 minutes until golden brown.  
  • Cool oh so slightly and enjoy with some more butter!
