Emergency Drop Biscuits
2 cups All purpose flour
1 scant tsp salt
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 to 5 tbsp cold butter (more is better)
1 cup plain yogurt or buttermilk
Preheat your oven to 450F. Cut the butter into small bits/cubes. Mix the dry ingredients together and rub the butter in using the tips of your fingers or by pulsing in a food processor. Stir in the yogurt. Drop tablespoons of dough onto a greased baking sheet and bake for 7 to 9 minutes, until golden brown.
Notes: I used 4 tbsp of butter, yogurt rather than buttermilk, and cooked them for around ten minutes as Jim was in charge of the biscuit formation and decided they should be extremely large and massive biscuits. Eat them right out of the oven...
