Good Eating Monday: Baking Powder Drop Biscuits!

We had a company visiting this weekend, all the way through Monday, and it really threw my Monday routine off, so I'm not getting to my Good Eating post a day late!

Today I have another Pinterest recipe I tried out. It was for "Mama's No Yeast Dinner Rolls,"---which is just another way of saying "Baking Powder Biscuits."
The thing with Pinterest recipes, though, is sometimes the picture being passed around with a certain recipe IS NOT what that recipe actually looks like. This recipe was one of those.

This is the Pin that recipe was attached to:
Pinterest Pin showing Yeast Rolls

However, these rolls pictured  ARE yeast rolls. You can tell by the fine, even texture and shape. I also know these are yeast rolls because this recipe is for a Baking Powder Biscuit called a Drop or Spoon Biscuit and, as such, always have a rough texture. Plus this recipe actually only makes a total of 5 small biscuits--and the muffin tin is clearly filled with rolls!


What the Biscuits this Recipe Makes Actually Look Like!

Here's what the Biscuits made from this recipe actually look like.

I squeezed 6 small biscuits out of this recipe, which was just right for me & Hubby.
If I'd made them full size, it would have only made 3.

Upside: These Biscuits, made with Mayo, are DELICIOUS!
They have a finer texture then Baking Powder biscuits made with butter.
Downside:  Recipe doesn't make enough for more then 2 people.
 To end up with a dozen normal sized biscuits, you'll want to triple this recipe.
Here's original ingredients, though I always use less salt then called for in recipes. Even if you triple this recipe, 1 teaspoon of salt would still be plenty

Baking Powder Drop Biscuits
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1/2 cup milk
2 Tablespoons Mayo

Preheat oven to 350 and spray a 6-cup muffin tin with oil cooking spray.
In a bowl combine & stir together all the ingredients.
You'll end up with a moist glob of dough.
Using two spoons, scoop  and push the dough off spoon into muffin cups, until all 6 muffin cups have about the same amount of biscuit dough in them. Like making drop cookies.
Then bake about 15-16 minutes until tops are tipped with golden brown.
Brush tops with a little melted butter or margarine & served.
Makes 5 or 6 small biscuits.
I once, may years ago when I was a teen in 4-H, made a batch of yeast rolls and I forgot to add ANY salt! The rolls were terrible tasting. Salt pays an important role in bringing out flavor in foods, but it only takes a little.
Eat up, me hearities, yo-ho!
