Quick Herb Drop Biscuits
These biscuits are just as good for brunch as they are alongside a fried-chicken dinner.

Source: Everyday Food, May 2004
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
- 1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, fresh chives, baking powder, and salt. Using a fork or your fingers, work in butter (cut into small pieces) until small pea-size clumps form. Mix in milk until the mixture comes together as a sticky dough.
Using a 1/3-cup measure, drop 8 mounds of dough onto a nonstick baking sheet; pat down slightly.
Bake until biscuits are golden brown, rotating baking sheet halfway through, 15 to 20 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
