A go-to recipe; a guaranteed quickie; a childhood favorite; and definitely a grown up pleasure. What's that you say? Drop biscuits. My mom used to make these for us as a kid out of the big yellow Bisquick box. I don't remember what we would eat them with but I can remember begging for "drop biscuits" with dinner. Today, when I really need a good pick me up, or a reminder of my childhood, or just an easy homemade bread to go alongside a bowl of soup, I whip these up. Sans Bisquick box. Just some flour, milk, baking powder, baking soda, a bit of butter and a food processor. Ten minutes later and a nice slice of butter melted in between two halves, there you have it. The perfect, made-from-scratch biscuit.
