Buttermilk Drop Biscuits

Last night, I had imagined that I was going to make a very nice loaf of Italian bread to bring to my son’s cub scout picnic. But I was tired from work and didn’t prepare the dough before sleeping. So finally at 11 AM (with only 1 hour before the picnic), my options were pretty limited. Looks like the scouts are only going to get Buttermilk Drop Biscuits.

Not as good as yeasted bread, but ready in just 30 minutes.

Since I didn’t plan this, I obviously don’t have buttermilk. So I substituted clabbered milk; 1 cup milk plus 1 tablespoon lemon juice, and let it it sit for 10 minutes. I melted a stick of butter in the microwave and let it cool for 5 minutes. Whisked together the ingredients; used a 1/4 cup measuring cup to portion and shape the biscuits, and baked them at 475 degrees of 12 minutes.

Rating: 3 stars.
Cost: $0.80 for 10 biscuits.
How much work? Low.
How big of a mess?  Low.
Start time 11:15 AM. Dinner time 11:50 AM.
