These biscuits are called drop biscuits because you simply “drop” them on to your baking sheet and bake them in the oven.  No need to roll and cut them out.

I make the biscuit dough in my food processor because it makes mixing in the cold butter with the flour so easy.   You could also make these by hand without a food processor by using two knives to “cut” the butter into the flour.  Little bits of butter are key to making light, flaky, moist biscuits.
