What You Need:

Let’s Make Drop Biscuits:

  1. Add the flour, baking powder and salt to the food processor and pulse 2-3 times to combine the dry ingredients.
  2. Cut the cold butter into chunks and add to the dry ingredients in the processor. Pulse until butter is the size of small peas and transfer to a bowl.
  3. Pour 3/4 cup of the milk into the mixture and use hands to combine. Add remaining milk as needed. Should be dough like and not too sticky.
  4. Use 1/4 cup scoop to make 10 rolls of dough. Drop them into a well greased skillet (8 in)
  5. Bake at 450’F for 18-20 minutes until golden brown on top.
  6. Brush tops with butter as desired.

Optional Add-Ins:

  • Chives and bacon bits
  • Fresh or dried herbs
  • Add 1-2 Tbls of sugar for a bit sweeter of a biscuit

My all time favorite way to enjoy these biscuits is with my Instant Pot Chicken Pot Pie Soup. We serve them on top and eat a piece of biscuit with each bite of soup. They melt perfectly into the soup for that comforting ‘pot pie’ feel.

    Best and easiest biscuits I’ve ever made! I greased the skillet with a LOT of salted butter 😊

    These are delicious and a perfect addition to my beef stew! Brushing the biscuits near the end of the baking time made then nice & golden brown. This will be in my recipe box. Thank you!!

    I have tried a bunch of different recipes and this worked so beautifully. I used oatmeal milk and worked in the butter by hand, I really just wanted to thank you so much for having this for me to find.

    1. I am so glad that you enjoy this recipe and that you were able to make it your own. Thank you for sharing with me!

    Absolutely delicious!! I don’t have a cast iron pan so I just put them on a parchment lined baking sheet. I substituted cream for the milk because I ran out. They came out so flaky and perfect. These will be my go to recipe for now on.

      Oh my gosh!!! These are the best biscuits ever!!! You don’t even need to butter them because there’s butter all through them! I didn’t have enough unsalted butter so had to use half salted butter and just decreased the qmount of salt. Also, I used 2% lactose free milk. They came out great! Thank you so much for these! I haven’t had chicken and biscuits for several years and now my favorite comfort food is back!!

      Just tried these, with coconut milk, surprised how salty tasting the were, and not at all fluffy. If I make again will cut back salt

      1. Hi Pam, I am sorry that they did not turn out. I have not tested these with coconut milk and that may have changed the texture. Changing ingredients in baking can alter things quite a bit. I hope that you try them again, they are a favorite in our home. As for the salt, did you use unsalted butter as the recipe calls for?

    1. Hi Stacey, I am not sure about a stainless steel skillet, but someone commented that they use a parchment lined baking sheet with success. I hope that helps!

    Came upon your recipe looking for a good GF drop biscuit recipe I could use for Chicken and Dumplings. These came out fantastic. I did use my usual GF baking mix/flour sub (Montana GF flour), and baked the dumplings in a cast iron covered skillet at 450 degrees. Seriously, they were amazing. Definitely a keeper!
