Drop Biscuits

I've never had the courage to make my own biscuits. I don't have the room to spread out and really make a mess. Curse this tiny apartment! Anywho... Suzanne over at Chickens in the Road (one of my all time favorite blogs) had a recipe for drop biscuits!! I don't need lots of room for drop biscuits. I followed her recipe to the letter.

Drop Biscuits: recipe yoinked from Suzanne

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shortening, lard, or (softened) butter
1 1/3 cups milk

Place first 5 ingredients in a large bowl and work in the shortening, lard, or butter with a pastry cutter then pour in the milk. Drop biscuits are all about the extra milk.

Spoon biscuit dough into a lightly greased pan or onto a baking sheet. I used my large cookie scoop to drop them into little round balls into my cute little casserole dish.

Bake at 450 degrees for 15-20 minutes. These biscuits are moist, so they take a little longer to bake. Your actual bake time will vary depending on the size you make your biscuits and even the type of pan used. Always keep an eye on biscuits while they’re baking!
*Recipe makes one dozen biscuits.

These were delicious!! Even my BF liked them :) If you haven't visited Suzanne yet, you should check her out. She has delicious recipes and fun farm animals :)
