These Easy 3-Ingredient Drop Biscuits came from my grandmother, Myne, and nothing could be simpler to make. They are tender and light with a rubbly, golden crust that will have you plucking an extra one or two from the bread basket when no one’s looking! That’s ok, I won’t tell!
I love the simplicity of this recipe. It’s homemade without being fussy or overly complicated.
You start by whipping cream to form soft peaks.
Then add self-rising flour and a little salt.
Gently fold the flour into the cream until you have a rough, shaggy dough.
Plop them by tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased baking sheet. Put the baking sheet into a hot oven and cook for 10-15 minutes or until they are nicely browned.
That’s it! Serve these biscuits with a good quality butter (I like Plugra or KerryGold). If it’s breakfast time, they’re great with jam or honey, too.
