easiest biscuits EVER

i've searched and searched for an easy biscuit recipe, because there are two things i hate: biscuits from the can, and making biscuits. sure, store-bought, read-to-bake biscuits are ohsodelicious, but they are so bad, and with river eating more and more solids [and asking for more solids... how can i resist when he comes up to me and says "PAPAPAPAPA!" and signs "more" ?] i wanted to be able to offer something healthy. but like i said, i hate making biscuits. all the cutting of the butter and trying to combine super-dry ingredients and keeping things cold so they turn out light and fluffy is not fun. 

so i finally found the perfect recipe. five simple ingredients. no cutting in the butter. no keeping things chilled. no rolling of the dough and cutting perfect shapes and then trying to get the shapes neatly off the counter and onto the baking sheet, while keeping the shape [impossible. i am the worst cookie-cutter ever.] these are great with either honey or jam, sausage or gravy. so here it is. no frills, no special instructions, because i don't feel like saying "sift" instead of mix. ;)

easy drop biscuits
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1/4 cup softened butter

mix dry ingredients. add wet ingredients. plop 'em on the sheet. bake for 12 minutes at 450 degrees. consume.

disclaimer: i never said they were pretty.
