I was looking for something easy to go with dinner, and I had recently starred this recipe from and a cookie for dessert’s blog. They sounded perfect, and easy. Great for a weeknight meal.

Drop Biscuits
Allrecipes via and a cookie for dessert
Makes 12


2 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
2 teaspoons white sugar
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup milk
2 cloves garlic, minced (optional)
1/4 cup cheese (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 450.
  2. In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, sugar, cream of tartar, and salt. Stir in butter, milk, garlic, and cheese until just moistened.
  3. Drop batter on a lightly greased cookie sheet by the tablespoon.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until golden on the edges, about 8-12 minutes.
  5. Serve immediately and enjoy!

These biscuits hit the spot, and as Brooke mentioned, a perfect base for adding other herbs or cheese (we added garlic and cheese).
