In this recipe I used fresh basil which was out of this world delicious and I highly recommend. You could of course use dried basil or even Italian Seasonings but I do prefer fresh.

Drop Biscuits are so easy to throw together even the kids could help make these without needing much help at all, depending on their age of course.

How to make Easy Drop Biscuits

Gather all ingredients and a mixing bowl. This recipe will be mixed by hand with a large spoon. I do suggest weighing Flour in this recipe so you don’t end up with dry biscuits.

Step 1: In a mixing bowl add All Purpose Flour, Kosher Salt, Baking Powder and chopped fresh Basil. Stir ingredients together.

Step 2: Add minced Garlic, Parmesan Cheese and Mozzarella Cheese and quickly stir to combine all ingredients together.

Step 3: Make a well in the center of the mixture and add Milk and Vegetable Oil and stir ingredients to combine until moisten. Do not over stir.

Step 4: Place Parchment Paper on Baking Sheet and drop biscuits onto Baking Sheet in spoonfuls. Recipe will make 12 biscuits.

Step 5: Bake at 400F Degrees for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown

Step 6: Remove from oven and brush melted butter on top

Serve with dinner or dip into Marinara Sauce

Why are they called Drop Biscuits?

Drop Biscuits have a crusty top with peaks and uneven tops due to the batter being dropped on a baking sheet. They are sometimes called Mountain Biscuits because they use only a few ingredients and are so simple to make.

Why is my Easy Drop Biscuit Crumbly?

A Drop Biscuit will become crumbly if the ratio of liquid to flour isn’t correct. For this recipe I recommend weighting ingredients for proper amounts. Below is a universal list of commonly used ingredients and their weight measurements
