I love this Old Fashioned Drop Biscuit Recipe – it is my go-to for a weekend brunch; and I never have leftovers. Making homemade biscuits are not only tastier but you can feel better about the ingredients you’re choosing; and that always makes for yummier food. Once you’ve seen how easy these are to make and taste the goodness, you’ll never want biscuits from a can again!
These drop biscuits are perfect for a country gravy or your homemade jam. The trick to making them look as good as they taste is an ice cream scoop…easy peasy my friends.
Seriously, I’m hungry just thinking about these babies.
