Well, butter my buns and call me a biscuit, have I got a treat for you! You know, being the queen of quick meals, I’m always on the hunt for recipes that are fast, easy, and downright delish. And nothing hits the spot quite like warm, flaky, melt-in-your-mouth drop biscuits.

First things first, let’s bust that myth – baking biscuits is a beast. Nope, not on my shift! Ah-uh, absolute poppycock! Let me just give you the low-down on how dead easy it is to whip these bad boys up.

Ha! The secret, you ask? The key is just this – don’t overthink it! I tell ya, these biscuits are more forgiving than your grandma’s famous apple pie. You mix, you drop, you bake – piece of cake, or I should say, drop of biscuit!

Have all your ducks in a row before you start. Flour, milk, butter, and a smidge of baking powder are the backbone of this operation. Oh, and by the way, don’t skimp on the butter. I mean, c’mon a little indulgence never hurt any soul!

After mixing it all together, that’s when the fun begins, dropping spoonfuls of the mix onto the cooking sheet. Don’t worry if they look somewhat untidy – they’ll come out looking rustic and homemade, and that’s the charm.

Into the oven they go, and in about fifteen minutes, tantalizing aromas are drawing everyone to your kitchen. Oh, the drama! Nothing to fuss or fret about, pull them out when they have a golden glimmer, and slather them with more butter or honey…or both.

Voila! You’ve just made the easiest drop biscuits ever, with no sweat off your brow. Now, don’t just stand there looking like a cat that got the cream, take a bite and join the easy baking revolution! Now, wasn’t that a piece of biscuit? Just know this, once they taste these biscuits, they’ll be eating out of your hands!

Remember, keep it fast, keep it simple, but above all else, keep it tasty folks! That’s my mantra at Best Quick Meals, and this recipe hits the trifecta square on the noggin. Roll up your sleeves and get dropping!

Let’s Make It!

  • Gather your ingredients: 2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 tablespoon baking powder, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/3 cup cold unsalted butter (cut into small pieces), and 1 cup cold milk.
  • Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • Add the cold butter pieces to the flour mixture.
  • Using your fingertips, rub the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
  • Gently stir in the milk just until the dough comes together. It’s important not to over-mix.
  • Drop heaping tablespoonfuls of the dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Leave a bit of room between each biscuit for them to rise and spread.
  • Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Allow the biscuits to cool slightly, then serve warm with a slab of butter, a drizzle of honey, or your favorite biscuit topping.
  • Enjoy your easy drop biscuits immediately. They’re best served fresh!

That Was Quick!
