Delicious Cornmeal Drop Biscuits

Cornmeal Drop Biscuits
If you develop a craving for biscuits and must have them now, drop biscuits are quick and easy with light and airy results. They are tasty with sausage and gravy, jams and jellies, or laughing cow cheese (my latest obsession!).

This recipe can be found in Cooking Light Cookbook 1994. This cookbook is a classic, as is everything Cooking Light cracks out. Fifty years from now this book will still be part of my collection.

Cornmeal Drop Biscuits
I am quickly developing an addiction to bread baking. There is nothing more satisfying than to see a mixture of solid and liquid ingredients become flaky little biscuits you can hold in your hand. This recipe is the least stressful of all the recipes I have tested thus far. I think I'm falling in love...with cooking.
