MAKE: Easy Drop Biscuits

Sometimes toast just doesn't do it for me. I want something flaky and buttery with my eggs! I love these biscuits because they are made from ingredients you most likely already have in your kitchen. A few weeks ago I combined them with gravy for a quick and easy biscuits and gravy. And they aren't just good for breakfast-- they are a fantastic substitute for rolls at dinner too.


3 cups of all-purpose flour
2 tbsp. baking powder
1 1/2 sticks of butter (cold and cut into small pieces)
1 3/4 cups of milk
pinch of salt
fresh herbs, like rosemary or sage (optional)
melted butter, to brush on top (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  
Place the flour, baking powder and salt in a food processor and pulse a few times to combine.
Add the butter (and fresh herbs if you have them on hand) and pulse until ingredients are combined.
Slowly add the milk through the top opening and pulse simultaneously. 
 Once the dough starts to come together it is ready, do not over mix.  
Drop hefty spoonfuls of the mixture onto a greased baking tray. 
Bake for 20-25 min.
Once they are golden brown, remove from oven.
Brush with melted butter after you they are done if desired!
Makes 12-15 biscuits.
