Drop Biscuits

I came across this easy recipe for drop biscuits the other day,  so I thought I’d share.  These are great covered with stew or smeared with butter and strawberry jelly (or whatever flavor you like).

Combine:

2 cups flour

1 Tablespoon baking powder

2 teaspoons sugar

1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

Lightly mix above, then add:

1 cup milk

1/2 cup light olive oil or melted butter

Mix all ingredients until just combined.  Do not over mix.  Drop biscuits by the spoonful on to a lightly greased cookie sheet.

Bake in a 450 (F) degree oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.  Yield: 10-12 biscuits depending on size.

Variation: add a teaspoon of your favorite herbs or 1/4 cup of cheese or both to the batter, then bake.
