My daughter-in-law loved these and inquired about the recipe. They are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. Usually drop biscuits are dropped directly onto the baking pan; however, I dropped the batter into a muffin pan.  These biscuits form craggy tops that are attractive looking. Drop biscuits are so easy and a great alternative to rolled or patted out biscuits when time is a factor, and you don’t want to fuss in the slightest. I have served these for breakfast with sugar-free apricot jam; delicious!  Of course, I had all the normal breakfast trimmings, but this served as the “bread” side and as I said, my daughter-in-law, Raquel, loved it! 


These are slightly dense when refrigerated; however, they lighten up nicely in the microwave and are like freshly baked biscuits again. To keep the texture lighter, I used olive oil instead of butter and not that much, so the calories for these biscuits are modest, which is a bonus.  However, with the sour cream (or use Greek yogurt) and Mozzarella cheese they are nutritious and filling.


You can store these at room temperature for almost 2 days.  Serve with sausage gravy or use to sandwich an egg and ham, etc.for breakfast, or simply butter and serve with your favorite sugarless jam.


To freeze these, I would individually wrap the biscuits and store in an airtight container for no more than 2 months.

I found using the muffin pan produced uniform biscuits; however, you could simply drop them onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.  The mounds of dough will bake up nicely this way, too.

You can change up the flavor of this easy drop biscuit recipe by adding herbs or a different cheese, yogurt instead of sour cream, etc.  Have fun and customize this recipe to your own taste.  


I liked these so much, that I am going to try my hand at another easy drop biscuit recipe that uses whipping cream and water mix instead of sour cream, and butter in the batter instead of olive oil.  I like cheese in the biscuits so I may keep that addition.  I would switch out the olive oil for cold butter, maybe unsalted butter. They are so easy that one can play around with them and come up with a net new recipe.  Stay tuned!
