Easy Drop Biscuits

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.

If you don’t want to use beer, try these easy drop biscuits with mayonnaise (a super helpful secret ingredient).

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.
