Easy Drop Biscuits

Hello again! After a few years of a break (a new business, a new baby, etc.), we are back! We would love to continue to add our favorite recipes to our blog when we can!

I grew up making drop biscuits out of Bisquick mix with my mom. Since then, I have missed those scrumptious, flaky biscuits! I finally found a recipe that replicates that taste and texture without the mix. These are perfect to go along with a hot cup of soup, a roast, or just as an extra side for entertaining. These are very easy, thrifty, and delicious!

Easy Drop Biscuits (from allrecipes.com)
Makes about 12 biscuits

2 cups flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
2 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup milk
1/4 cup shredded cheese (optional)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Mix dry ingredients then add the butter, milk, and cheese until just moistened (do not overmix). Drop batter on a lightly greased baking sheet (I use a cookie scoop). They don't have to look perfect, that is the beauty of it! Bake 8-10 minutes until slightly golden.
