Drop Biscuits with Cinnamon Butter
These biscuits are one of my favorite things to make. They only have four ingredients (and it's things I almost always have), and they are super quick. They are great with gravy, honey, or jam, but today I'm making them with cinnamon butter!
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
6 tbsp softened butter
1/2 of milk (you may need a tbsp or two more)
Preheat oven to 450. Combine flour and baking powder in a bowl. Cut in your butter. Once butter has been completely cut in, stir in milk. Dough will be sticky, but it should form into a ball. (If after you've stirred it all together it still feels dry and crumby, add a tbsp of milk at a time until all the flour has been incorporated into a dough.) "Drop" biscuits by the spoonful into a greased pie plate. (Please be aware that these are NOT going to be pretty perfectly round biscuits. They are only meant to be delicious!) Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
**I've had a few questions about cutting in butter, so I've added a video! Hope this helps!!
The cinnamon butter was so so simple. Simply take a stick of butter that you have set out to soften. Add cinnamon and sugar to taste and place it on a piece of plastic wrap. Cover and roll it to form it back into a stick shape. Stick it back into the refrigerator to let it set up. Once it has set up, remove from plastic wrap and you can stick it in your butter dish or on a covered plate and use it for anything! This is perfect for making cinnamon toast, or use garlic powder and parsley instead of cinnamon and sugar for a yummy garlic toast topping!
