Mayonnaise Biscuits

     With just a few ingredients, a mixing bowl and a hot dutch oven you can dazzle your guests with these light, flaky biscuits.  Except for a ready made packaged mix, this is about the easiest biscuit recipe you'll ever find.  Drop them into your dutch oven with a spoon, brush with butter, bake and you'll be amazed by the down home flavor of these soft on the inside, crispy on the outside, golden nuggets.  Drizzle them with a little honey and you'll wonder how anything so good could ever be made with so few ingredients.  I baked these in a 10 inch oven with 10 coals in a ring on the bottom and covered the lid with 20-22 coals to bring the oven to 400 degrees quickly.

Mayonnaise Biscuits
2 cups self-rising flour
1 cup milk
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2 Tblsp. melted butter

     In mixing bowl cut mayonnaise into self-rising flour with pastry blender until small crumbs form and mayonnaise is fully incorporated into the flour.
     Add milk and lightly stir until batter is sticky and pulls away from the sides of the bowl.  Do not over mix.
     Drop by tablespoons into lightly oiled dutch oven.  Brush with melted butter.
     Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes until lightly browned and crisp on top.
     Makes 12 biscuits.
