1 dozen (serving size: 1 biscuit)

The dough for these biscuits is dropped into muffin tins instead of onto a baking sheet, but their final shape is still free-form like that of traditional drop biscuits.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450º.

Step 2

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add milk; stir just until moist.

Step 3

Spoon the batter into 12 muffin cups coated with cooking spray. Bake at 450° for 12 minutes or until golden. Remove biscuits from pan immediately, and place on a wire rack.

I used 2% milk because it was on hand.  Threw in some garlic powder & shredded cheese.  Baked on a regular baking sheet.  The recommended 12 minutes was perfect.

I made these today to go with sausage gravy. These were wonderful on their own as well. They got several compliments with breakfast being for 11 people. Yum.

Great quick recipe for when I don't have buttermilk on hand - I often throw these together with CL's Old-Fashioned Chicken Potpie. Great tip from another reviewer to just drop on cookie sheet and skip muffin tin (I use parchment so no cleanup) and make 9 bigger biscuits which are easier to split and butter.

These were great! I added 3/4 cup of cheddar cheese and after making, my husband insisted I make more. They are easy and great because they are made with things you ususally have on hand.

Great recipe, use these all the time for biscuits and gravy. The muffin tin thing is stupid, though, just use a cookie sheet.

Made with half flour and half masa, used as a topping for mexican style potpie. Would definitely make again, maybe follow the advice of the others and add some cheese
