Buttery Drop Biscuits Recipe
  • Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 425 degrees. Grease the baking sheet.
  • Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt in large bowl. Combine buttermilk and 8 tablespoons melted butter in medium bowl, stirring until butter forms small clumps.
  • Add buttermilk mixture to dry ingredients and stir with rubber spatula until just incorporated and batter pulls away from sides of bowl.
  • Using greased 1/4-cup dry measure, scoop level amount of batter and drop onto the greased baking sheet (biscuits should measure about 2 1/4 inches in diameter and 1 1/4 inches high). Repeat with remaining batter, spacing biscuits about 1 1/2 inches apart.
  • Bake until tops are golden brown and crisp, 14 to 16 minutes.
  • Brush biscuit tops with remaining 2 tablespoons melted butter. Transfer to wire rack and let cool 5 minutes before serving.
