How to Make Easy Drop Biscuits
This is NOT an overly complicated or difficult recipe. Even if you do not consider yourself a “baker” you can successfully make these biscuits!
Start by preheating your oven to 450 degrees. Also prep a muffin tin by greasing the cups with spray or oil. You can also drop these onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
In a bowl of a stand mixer (you can also use a hand mixer), sift together the 2 cups flour and 2 ½ teaspoon baking powder. Add 1 teaspoon salt, 1 cup milk, and ¼ cup butter that has been cut into smaller pea sized pieces.
Using the paddle attachment (or beaters of a hand mixer) blend together the dough just until it comes together. Overmixing will cause your biscuits to be tough.
With wet hands or a spoon (the dough will be sticky), drop the dough into your muffin tin. It should make about 12 small/medium drop biscuits.
Bake for 10 minutes. Using a fork pop the biscuits out of the muffin tin and cool for a minute or two, then serve!
