    Mama's Mayonnaise Biscuits

    Source of Recipe

    From "Bon Appétit, Y'all" by Virginia Willis

    Recipe Introduction

    "Mama made these often when we were growing up. After I attended culinary school, I admittedly became quite snobby about using store-bought ingredients in recipes. I wanted to make the mayonnaise, not buy it. This type of recipe seemed one short step above a baking mix. Now a little older and wiser, I appreciate it for what it is. I understand Mama was putting freshly baked bread on the family table, and that was really important. I now ask for them when I go home to visit and enjoy every sweet bite."

    List of Ingredients

    ◦  1 tablespoon canola oil, for the tin
    ◦  2 cups self-rising flour
    ◦  3 tablespoons mayonnaise
    ◦  1 cup whole milk
    ◦  1 teaspoon sugar


    Preheat the oven to 350° F. Brush a 12-cup medium muffin tin with oil.

    Combine the flour, mayonnaise, milk, and sugar in a bowl. Using a spoon or an ice cream scoop, spoon dough into each muffin cup, filling about half full. Alternatively, drop spoonfuls of the dough onto a greased baking sheet.

    Bake until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.
    Transfer to a wire rack to cool slightly, then invert the biscuits onto the rack to cool until warm. Serve warm.

    Makes 12
