Okay, here’s my super seekrit* recipe for the fastest, easiest biscuits in the world, whenever you don’t have the ingredients or don’t feel like farting around with cutting in butter and shortening and ice water and all that:
- 1 cup of self-rising flour
- three tablespoons of mayonnaise
- 1/2 cup of milk.
Mix it up, and spoon into an oiled muffin tin (it makes about four or five in my muffin tin). Bake at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes, or until lightly browned. I’m pretty sure these would work fine on a cookie tray as well. So easy! You can add cheese and herbs, or sugar and anything else you want for a sweet version.
If you don’t have self-rising flour, add 1/2 tsp. of salt, and 1 and 1/2 tsp. baking powder.
