How to Make Mayonnaise Biscuits in a Muffin Tin

These drop biscuits are effortless to make with only a few simple ingredients. Spray a 12-cup muffin pan with cooking spray. In a medium bowl, combine flour and mayonnaise. Stir in buttermilk, until a soft dough forms. Using an ice cream scoop or large cookie scoop, drop batter into the prepared muffin cups. Bake in a preheated oven until puffy and golden brown. Brush with melted butter, if desired. Serve immediately.
