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.
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.
