Blue Ribbon Recipe

Anna's drop biscuits are great when you have company because they're quick and easy to make. They will love to wake up to them. These biscuits are crunchy outside with a soft and fluffy center. We got 10 biscuits from our batch, but the quantity really depends on how big you make them.
