Soft and tender drop biscuits made with just 6 simple ingredients in less than 20 minutes. No rolling, cutting or yeast needed...it doesn't get easier than this!
Prep Time: 5minutes
Cook Time: 12minutes
Total Time: 17minutes
4Tablespoonssalted butter, more for tops if desired
1/2cupmilk, whole milk is preferred but also works great with 2%
1/4teaspoonKosher salt,regular or sea salt
For serving (optional): butter, honey, jam
Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Melt the butter in a small bowl. Then add the milk and let it sit a minute. It should start to look a little clumpy.
In a medium size bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Then add the buttermilk mixture and stir just until combined. DO NOT over mix or they will be dry. Then use a large cookie scoop, 1/4 cup or large spoon to drop the batter on the prepared baking sheet. Place 8 dough balls about an inch apart.
Bake for 11-13 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown. Remove from oven and brush melted butter over the top if desired.
Note: You can also use buttermilk with this recipe if you prefer. I do love using it if I have on hand because it makes them extra tender but make sure to still add the butter. Freezer instructions: These biscuits freeze great. Feel free to double the recipe and freeze half for later. Simply allow to cool and then place in a zip top bag or freezer container. When ready to eat, remove from the freezer to thaw and microwave for about 10 seconds, or until warm.
