Quick and Easy Drop Biscuits

Today I am sharing one of my favorite go-to biscuit recipes that is quick and easy, always a hit. No roll, no fuss biscuits from scratch, that come out perfect every time. Tender, flaky....delicious! 

Quick and Easy Drop Biscuits

Print Recipe 
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup milk 
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray.

In a large bowl, mix all of the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, cream of tartar, salt). Next, add milk and butter, stirring until all dry ingredients are just blended- it's important not to over mix. Drop large heaping tablespoons (I use a medium size Pampered Chef scooper) of batter on cookie sheet. Bake on middle rack of oven for approximately 10-12 minutes, until tops and edges begin to turn golden brown. Remove and serve warm with butter, honey or jam. Enjoy! Recipe makes one dozen.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Is it necessary to add cream of tartar or is there a substitute than can be used?

If I wanted to change these to Cheese Biscuits, any idea how much cheese I would add?
