Cathead Biscuits or also known as drop biscuits have been around for a long time. I remember as a small child and all the way through my adult life as she was able, she made these biscuits and they were delicious! She used shortening instead of butter though.
My wife, I found out while dating, makes these biscuits the same way my mother did, from scratch. She never measures anything and they always turn out delicious!
So, needless to say, I have been eating homemade biscuits and gravy since I was born and still get them made now! Oh, yes, she makes gravy from scratch as well.... Yup, just like the gravy my mother made!
These biscuits are so easy made, you will make them over and over again! It only takes about 10 minutes of prep time so, in about 20 -25 minutes you will be eating hot cathead or drop biscuits.
We took these out of the oven a 18 minutes so you can see how they look. In the future, we will use the broiler to brown the tops a little more. at about 15 - 16 minutes.
Note: If desired, you can top with melted butter as soon as you remove them from the oven.
These are by far some of the easiest and tastiest biscuits you will make. Try not to over think or over stir these biscuits and you will enjoy a wonderful and tasty batch of homemade cathead biscuits like momma and grandma use to make. These biscuits are a little lighter and flakier than the ones made with shortening.
You can view the video below to see how we made them.
Have a great day!
