Drop Biscuits

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by maryannatwork

From 1942 Good Housekeeping Cook Book with directions to suit myself. Quick and easy. The only variation I would consider would be to add 1 cup grated cheese in step 4.

Very yummy! Thank you for sharing. We followed the directions exactly and they turned out great.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F Grease muffin pan or cookie sheet.
  2. I skip sifting but I fluff my flour before I measure.
  3. Mix dry ingredients.
  4. "Cut in" shortening. If you don't have a pastry blender, this means using 2 knives and, with a scissor motion, cut across the shortening repeatedly until the mixture is a very fine crumble.
  5. Add milk.
  6. Stir lightly, just enough to blend ingredients, or biscuits will be tough. Dough will be sticky and cling to fork.
  7. Fill greased muffin pan 2/3 full or drop 1" apart on greased cookie sheet.
  8. Bake at 450°F 12-15 minutes.
