I made drop biscuits this afternoon and we’re having them with baked chicken drumsticks and green beans from the garden.  But I’m just sharing the drop biscuit recipe with ya tonight!

Drop biscuits are a staple item in my home. We have them at least 3 times a week. I make a triple batch and just keep them in the fridge until we need them. I add flax seed to my biscuits, just to add some omega to it.

I made the drop biscuits from the More With Less cookbook. Oh my gosh, they are great!

Just wanted to let you know that I made these! Unfortunately I was in a hurry and I didn’t get to make the honey butter, but I really wish I did! Honestly my fiance thought they were a little plain, but I know the honey butter would have changed his mind. But I was really impressed with how *filling* these little biscuits are…. I have been making little mini-sandwiches out of them and I swear, one or two of these fill me up for hours! I love that. :)

Yes, the honey butter is key :)

If I make the honey-butter ahead of time, will it keep well in the fridge?
