    Abby Girl's Note:

    Drop biscuits are best the same day they are made...no comparison!!! Perfect for 4 people. When you stir slightly cooled melted butter into cold buttermilk, the butter will clump. Although this might look like a mistake, it's one of the secrets to this recipe. You can double the recipe...if needed!

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    bicuits

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 475 degrees.
    2. 2
      Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt in large bowl. Combine buttermilk and 1/4 cup melted butter in medium bowl, stirring until butter forms small clumps
    3. 3
      Add buttermilk mixture to dry ingredients and stir with rubber spatula until just incorporated and batter pulls away from sides of bowl.
    4. 4
      Using greased 1/4-cup dry measure, scoop a scant amount of batter and drop onto parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet. Repeat with remaining batter, spacing biscuits about 1 1/2 inches apart.
    5. 5
      Bake until tops are golden brown and crisp, 8 - 12 minutes. They can be made up ahead of time and gently re-heated in a 300 oven for 10 minutes.
    6. 6
      Brush biscuit tops with 1 tablespoon melted butter. Transfer to wire rack and let cool 5 minutes before serving.
    7. 7
      Test if baking powder is fresh: Mix 2 teaspoons of the baking powder into a cup of water. If there is an immediate reaction of foaming and fizzing, the baking powder is okay to use. If the reaction is at all delayed or weak, throw it away and buy a fresh can.

      This is a great recipe from America's Test Kitchen. They double it with a yield of 12 but I only got 10 out of it. First recipe ever that really comes out like a good biscuit.

      I wanted a quick bread to go with soup, and these fit the bill. They were quick to mix and quick to bake. I added a bit of black pepper, parsley, garlic powder, and shredded cheddar. These biscuits came out delicious and light. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I know I will make them again!

      Great recipe! I used milk instead of buttermilk. Next time I'll add garlic & cheddar cheese! Thank you for sharing!
