Drop biscuits are simple and easy to make because there is no rolling required. This 5-ingredient biscuit recipe by Baker Bettie on YouTube can be made in under 30 minutes. The difference between drop biscuits and traditional biscuits would be that traditional biscuits are flakier and fluffier. Drop biscuits are easier and quick alternatives that can be dropped over a casserole or gravy. The possibilities are endless with this drop biscuit recipe, and there is not a big mess afterward either. I love how you can scoop the biscuit batter onto a cast-iron skillet or pan and bake. For some reason, I haven’t perfected my biscuit recipe yet, but now that I’ve come across this biscuit recipe, it’ll save me so much time and effort.
First, combine the dry ingredients and add any herbs or spices. Add the pieces of cold sliced butter with the dry ingredients. Then, use a pastry cutter or fork to cut the butter through. Once the texture of the flour is coarse, add in any cheese before adding in the milk.
Next, add the milk and stir everything together until a thick dough forms. Scoop the dough onto a baking sheet or greased cast iron skillet. Continue to watch Baker Bettie tutorial on YouTube for full instructions and details.
I think drop biscuits look more homemade because it’s not a perfect biscuit shape. I love how you can use any add-ins to make any kind of biscuits such as sweet biscuits, savory biscuits, or cheesy biscuits. This is a great basic biscuit recipe that can be tweaked with other ingredients.
