READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by WI Cheesehead

These are drop biscuits with oil instead of butter or shortening.

Top Review by Galley Wench

Made these biscuits to use with breakfast sandwiches so instead of 12 small drop biscuits, I flattened out the dough on the cookie sheet and cut into 6 squares and baked. I encountered two problems . . . they did not rise very high and had an 'oil' taste/texture to them. Next time I make I'll replace the oil with shortening or butter (cut into the flour mixture). To make them rise higher think I'll try covering and allowing them to rise for 30-45 minutes before baking. Guess another option would be to add a leavening (yeast or baking powder). I used proofed, very active, SFO starter so I'm certain that wasn't the problem. Thanks for sharing!
