At 4:30 pm I knew we were going to have pasta for dinner, but I wanted some homemade bread, too! I just can’t stay out of the kitchen 😉 However, kneading dough and waiting for it to rise takes way too long, I didn’t have time. So, I found this quick and very easy recipe for drop biscuits. A little something savory for the not so sweet teeth people (?). Whatever. Here we go…
What you will need:
Baking sheet lined with parchment paper
For the dough:
2 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup milk
Salt to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Mix in the softened butter until crumbly (I just used a spoon). Add egg and milk and stir until everything is combined. Drop by spoonfuls onto lined baking sheet and bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until just starting to brown. Enjoy right out of the oven!
Tip: After dropping half the dough onto the baking sheet, I added a handful of shredded cheddar cheese and a tablespoon of chives into the remaining dough. In the picture below, the left half are plain, and the right are the cheddar and chive biscuits. Get creative and add anything you like!
