Quick and Easy Drop Biscuits


  • 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.
