Drop biscuits are the fastest and easiest biscuits you can make—all you do is whisk together the dry ingredients, stir in the liquids, and drop lumps of dough onto a baking sheet. The secret to getting these drop biscuits light and tender: beer. If beer isn’t your thing, substitute the same volume of buttermilk. We recommend serving with a hearty dish, like the best chili recipe ever.

Instructions

  1. 1Heat the oven to 400°F and arrange a rack in the middle. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. 2In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt until blended. Add the beer and melted butter and stir until it forms a moist, shaggy dough that just comes together. Try not to overwork the dough.
  3. 3Drop 8 equal-sized dollops of the dough onto the parchment-lined baking sheet, spacing them evenly apart. Bake until the biscuits are golden and puffed, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool slightly before serving.
