3-Ingredient Drop Biscuits

Drop biscuits are really something special because they have the same delicious texture as regular biscuits but are so much easier! And these 3-Ingredient Drop Biscuits in particular are incredibly moist, flaky, and buttery, made with just butter, self-rising flour, and buttermilk.
Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 15 mins
Total time: 25 mins
Yield: 10 servings


  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • ½ cup salted butter (1 stick), can use unsalted butter if you prefer
  • 1 cup buttermilk


  • Preheat your oven to 450℉ and prep a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the self-rising flour. Then add the cubed butter and work it into the flour with your hands (or a pastry cutter) until it's evenly distributed and in coarse round pieces. You can also grate the butter in, but freeze it for 30 minutes first.
  • To the flour and butter mixture, create a small well and pour in the buttermilk. Mix with a spoon until just combined.
  • Use either 2 spoons or a large cookie scoop and drop ¼ cup mounds onto the parchment lined baking sheet. Continue to drop biscuits at least 1" apart (it's ok if they touch when they bake) until there's no dough remaining.
  • Bake for about 15-18 minutes until nicely golden brown.
