easy and amazing biscuits

This is another Cooks Country hit. I love to have biscuits for dinner every once in awhile. Throw some butter and honey or butter and jam on a hot biscuit and I am in heaven. And so are the kids. Win win, right! Well the recipe I used to use had to be rolled out and cut. They were huge, beautiful biscuits.... But bland. I got my Cooks Country magazie the other day and thought I would give these a go. So good!! And EASY!!!!  I used the large scoop from Pampered Chef to drop them on the cookie sheet with the Sil-Eco on it. So easy. You must try them!

Cooks Country Soft and TenderBiscuits
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 TBS sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 cup whole milk
3/4 cup mayonnaise (full fat)

1. Preheat oven to 450 and make sure the oven rack is in the middle of the oven.
Line a bakingsheet with parchment or a silicone mat (i have one I love called Sil-Eco on Amazon). Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Whisk milk and mayo together in a separate bowl. Stir milj mixture into flour mixture until just combined.
2. In this step CC has you use a greased 1/4 cup measure. I used a heaping large scoop which I thought was easier. Anyway, drop scoops of dough onto prepared baking sheets. Bake until tops are golden about 12 to 14 minutes, rotating sheet halfway through baking (I forgot this step and they were still fine). Transfer to wire cooling rack and let cool 5 minutes  (or not). Serve.
