Simple Drop Biscuits

Even though I don’t have a lot of flour at my disposal right now (social distancing from coronavirus), I have made these Simple Drop Biscuits twice since we’ve been sheltering in place.  Hello, comfort food.

They make me think of my grandma, who was able to whip anything up on a whim because she stocked her pantry to the nines. She would have enough flour to make these drop biscuits every day for the next few months. 

I was already prepped with toilet paper before this all went down (phew!), so you know, priorities…

I love biscuits but I don’t really like rolling out the dough or cutting them. I tend to overwork it and my dough doesn’t always rise as much as I want it to. You too?

However, this dough is a dream. I like that I don’t have to have buttermilk (we always have milk!) and I can just scoop them out into a skillet to bake. No rolling out. 

 It was nice to have these in our house this week.  These simple pleasures, like surprising your family with biscuits help keep memories of good times alive.
