Quick Drop Biscuits
source: MGF/Lady Disdain
I’ve been making these biscuits for years. The recipe came from my old copy of Joy Of Cooking – the one I got 25 years ago when I first got married! Over the years I’ve begun adding cheese and hot pepper flakes to to make the biscuits a little more special.
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tsp. double acting baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup milk or water
1 cup shredded cheese (optional)
1 tsp. red pepper flakes (optional)
Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Pour in milk/water and oil. Stir with fork until mixture readily leaves the sides of the bowl. Add the cheese and red pepper flakes and stir for another 10 seconds. Drop onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes.
Note: Be sure to measure your ingredients exactly, or the biscuits will not turn out well.
