Buttermilk Drop Biscuits are one of my favorite things to make! Easy to make, delicious to eat!
And I’ve never been one to turn down the opportunity to make biscuits.
Or eat them, it seems.
They’ll be perfect to whip up for Father’s Day weekend! Or anytime, really!
For my Buttermilk Drop Biscuits, I simply combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl and then scoop them out with a large ice cream scoop onto a sheet pan that has been liberally coated with shortening, butter, or lined with a Silpat baking sheet. The shortening or butter adds a crunchy bottom to the biscuits, so that is my preferred method, but you decide what way works best for you!
Then, I pop them into a preheated oven and let them do their magic.
That’s it. No rolling, no floured countertops, no doughy hands.
Isn’t that the best thing ever? Delicious buttermilk biscuits without the mess?!
I used my largest scoop when making these drop biscuits, so they were huge-ish. You can use whatever size you prefer for your biscuits based on the number of biscuits you want to serve. With this large scoop, I made six biscuits. Normally, I reduce the size and have a good dozen or 13 biscuits.
These buttermilk drop biscuits are perfect with all sorts of dishes or right by themselves with a bit of butter and a drizzle of honey.
