Hello all– These biscuits got thumbs up from the family tonight. And they are so easy– Our 10 year old Charlotte whipped them up by herself (well, I did set them in the oven)!
Tender on the inside, hot and crunchy around the edges. With a little jam– perfect!
The recipe of from Mollie’s blog Fugal Housefrau. It you haven’t visited her, you should! Such practical, pretty, delicious recipes. Every one of them!
EASY DROP BISCUITS
1/2 cup butter (1 stick), cut into slices
1 1/2 cup flour
2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. sugar
3/4 cup whole milk
Prepare the butter, cutting it in pieces.
In a mixing bowl stir together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Use a pastry blender (or two forks) to cut in the butter until it resembles coarse crumbs. Then stir in the milk to make a sticky dough.
Drop spoonfuls of the dough onto a baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray (makes 8 to 10). And pop them into a 400 degree oven for 12 o 14 minutes until they are golden brown.
Don’t wait! Eat them hot from the oven with spoonfuls of jam!
Here’s our baker Charlotte, helping me take down the Christmas tree. I told her to pick out the ornaments she wants when she grows up and has her own tree. Good times with that girl!
