I didn't have enough time to do a yeast bread like breadsticks or rolls, and didn't have the energy for rolling, cutting and re-rolling biscuits. Hello drop biscuits!br /br /br /I have not always been a fan of drop biscuits, as the majority of the strikerocks/strike drop biscuits I've had growing up were made of a href="http://www.bettycrocker.com/products/bisquick/default"Bisquick/a and resembling pucks. But these drop biscuits were fluffly, with little pockets of air inside, perfect for dipping into soup. The key is not to overstir the batter and allow it to be pretty loose when scooping them onto the baking sheet.br /br /divThey don't split evenly for my favorite leftover biscuit food: egg biscuit sandwiches, but they are a quick fix and made for a great side for our soup./divbr /bbr //bbr /bBaking Powder Biscuits/bbr /revised from a href="http://www.bettycrocker.com/tips/glossary-page/techniques/a-c/b/biscuits-how-to-make"Betty Crocker Cookbook/abr /Makes: 12 biscuitsbr /br /2 cups all purpose flour br /1 tablespoon sugarbr /1 tablespoon baking powderbr /1 teaspoon saltbr /1/4 teaspoon onion powderbr /1/2 cup butter or shorteningbr /1 cup milkbr /br /Preheat oven to 450 degrees.br /br /Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and onion powder in a medium bowl.
