The Easiest Buttermilk Drop Biscuits

The title of these biscuits is not deceiving.  They really are super easy, super fast, and super delicious.  Don't get me wrong, I love a good old fashioned Buttermilk Biscuit that needs to be rolled and cut, but sometimes, mama ain't got time for that!

This recipe is from one of my all time favorite shows - America's Test Kitchen - if it's coming from them, you know it's gotta be good.  These are great as is, by themselves.  They don't even need any extra butter (although, extra butter never hurts!).  But, my go-to use for them is as a topping for my Pot Pie.

Makes approximately 1 dozen

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder 
1 tsp sugar 
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda 
1 cup cold buttermilk 
8 tbsp (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
1 tbsp melted butter (optional)


1.  Preheat the oven to 375.  In a large bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients.  Set aside.  In a smaller bowl, combine the buttermilk and melted and cooled butter and mix until the butter begins to coagulate.  

2.  Add the buttermilk/butter mixture to the flour and mix until it all comes together to form a sticky dough.  They then can either be scooped onto a parchment/silpat lined baking sheet or, used my preferred way, as a pot pie topper. 

3.  Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown if baking alone, 25-30 minutes if they are being baked on top of a pot pie.  Remove from oven and brush with melted butter if desired.  Enjoy!
