This is the very first recipe I ever made by myself. I think I was probably around 11-12 years old. Boy, did I think I was so grown-up cooking biscuits! I know you're probably thinking "mayonnaise in biscuits"...but you really should try them. They are so good! I just found this recipe again...haven't made these in years. I can't wait to cook them again. Cook time is approximate.


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Lightly grease a muffin tin.
  3. Combine all ingredients well so that the dough is smooth.
  4. Drop the dough by spoonfuls into the muffin tins.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven approx.
  6. 30 minutes or until biscuits are done.

I've been using this same recipe since 1959 without adding any other ingredients for flavoring.
They have always been great as is. Being on a low-fat, low-sodium diet we're not able to eat
highly seasoned foods.
If you don't have self-rising flour in your pantry - add 1-1/2 tsp. baking powder and 1/2 tsp. salt
to 1 cup of all-purpose flour - it will save you buying it.

I used low fat mayo and skim milk. Not quite as tender but still a tasty biscuit.

Great biscuits! So easy! I use low fat mayo to reduce the lipids even more.
