I wanted biscuits to go with dinner tonight. I was running late, however, and wasn't sure that I had time. I decided to make quick drop biscuits. They turned out so good! They were buttery and crispy on the outside, moist and light on the inside. I will definitely do these again. Just have to write down what I did so I don't forget. These made 22 biscuits, so you could make half if you need. I bet they would freeze well - I don't know for sure because they never last that long with my crew.
4 cups flour
2 Tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
10 Tablespoons butter, chilled and cut in cubes
2 1/2 cups buttermilk OR milk
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
Using 2 knives or a pastry cutter, cut in the butter.
Stir in the buttermilk and mix until the dough comes together.
Drop the dough onto a baking sheet (I cover it with parchment paper). I use a large cookie scoop. Leave space between each biscuit for them to expand.
Bake for 12 - 15 minutes, until the biscuits are golden brown.
