Easy Drop Biscuits
The most accurate way to measure flour (especially important when baking) is to use a large spoon to scoop the flour into a dry measuring cup, then run the flat edge of a knife across the top of the cup to sweep off any excess. Resist the urge to scoop flour with the measuring cup directly from the bag: The flour will become compacted and you’ll get more than is intended for the recipe.

- 2 cup(s) all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
- 1/2 cup(s) (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
- 1 tablespoon(s) baking powder
- 1 teaspoon(s) kosher salt
- 1 cup(s) whole milk
- 1. Heat oven to 400° F. In a food processor, combine the flour, butter, baking powder, and salt; pulse until pea-size clumps form. Add the milk and pulse just until moistened.
- 2. Drop 6 large mounds of the dough (about ½ cup each) onto a baking sheet. Bake until golden, 18 to 20 minutes.
