Quickie Olive Oil Biscuits

Total Time

These are fast, easy and tasty. I found the recipe in the Chicago Sun-Times but it's originally from 'Entertaining 1-2-3 by Rozanne Gold. It just serves 2 so, obviously, double or triple if needed.


  1. Place flour in a small bowl.
  2. Make a well and add olive oil and milk and stir until blended and soft dough is formed.
  3. Add more or less milk to adjust consistency.
  4. Do not overwork or biscuits will be tough.
  5. Drop soft dough from spoon onto baking sheet coated with nonstick cooking spray.
  6. Bake in a preheated 400-degree oven until golden, about 10 minutes.

I didn't really care for these. They didn't have alot of taste and came out too dry but hubby said he liked them. Thanks for sharing.

I thought these were just ok. I would give them 3 stars for taste, but I added a star based on how fast and easy they are. Good for a quick bread to go with a weeknight dinner. It seemed like they needed a flavor boost though--without butter they were sort of heavy and tasteless. Maybe some garlic and oregano? I will make again, but will try to find ways to liven them up a bit.

These are delicious. Instead of making drop biscuits, I patted the dough out lightly and cut with the rim of a cup. I got 3 biscuits. I did have to add another tablespoon of milk. Thanks, we loved them
