Quick and Easy Drop Biscuits Recipe

  • Author: Sharilyn
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 6 biscuits 1x


Easy Drop Biscuits are tender, moist, and buttery inside with a perfect crust on the outside. They pair well with any syrups, jams or jellies!



1 and 1/2 cups self-rising flour

3/4 cup buttermilk

3/4 cup cold salted butter, cut into chunks

1/8 tsp salt (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  2. Add flour and butter to a mixing bowl; using a pastry blender, incorporate butter into flour until mixture resembles coarse sand. The butter should be in tiny, pebble-sized chunks. 
  3. Slowly add buttermilk, alternating between mixing and adding liquid. Do this until ingredients are fully incorporated. Mixture should not be overly wet.
  4. Scoop biscuits onto a baking sheet using a spoon-there should be six in total.
  5. Bake at 425 degrees until biscuits are tan/golden brown on top-about 20 minutes.
