What's for breakfast?

I am writing to my fellow biscuit lover.  You simply must try this recipe!  It couldn't be any easier to make, and these are guaranteed to be a hit.

Bisquick®-type Drop Biscuits
(from the back of my Pamela's baking mix bag - see?  The Italians would call that, "Molto semplici!", which means very simple.)


  • 1 cup Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix
  • 1/4 cup shortening (I used butter)
  • 1/3 cup plus 1 T. milk

(As you can see, I did not take photos of the baking process; as at the time, I was in a hurry to have these ready in time for dinner.  Also, due to the fact that the recipe states not to let the dough sit.)


Preheat oven to 375°.

In a large mixing bowl pour in Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix and cut in shortening (or butter) with fork or pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Pour milk into flour mixture while stirring with a fork. Do not let dough sit. Drop spoonfuls of dough onto a greased cookie sheet*.  Bake 12 minutes, or until brown on top.

* If you want something other than drop biscuits, you can easily pour these into muffin tins instead (which is what I did).

Makes 5-6 biscuits (I usually double the recipe).

Oops, looks like Pamela forgot a step (pay attention, this is important):

Hide biscuits unless you want to be left with only a pile of crumbs.  I kid you not.

Oh, and regarding serving:

Since these are practically made of butter (and they taste oh-so-very good), I just like to top them with a nice drizzle of honey (or eat them plain, depending on the time of day/meal); but if you're like one of my brothers, more butter is definitely better (and never enough).

Well, there you have it, biscuit-fanciers.
