stop, drop, and roll - biscuits

Grandma was a firm believer in rolled biscuits, auntie only made drop biscuits, which made grandma mutter under her breath. All of it was so long ago that I really don't remember the difference but I know I liked both.

    I find the drops to be denser. The rolled are much easier for inserting slices of ham, sausage, etc.

    Like you, I enjoy them both.

    And a comparable debate in the south is which is better, slider or drop dumplings.

      Rolled. I like the flakiness and the little veins of buttery deliciousness, when they're made right.

        Rolled are flakier, and easier to split. So, if you like butter, preserves or other spreads on your biscuits, rolled rule. But, if like me, you eat the tender quick breads "au naturel", then drop are easier. I also like both.
