Secret Ingredient Biscuits
From Cook's Country
The secret ingredient in these biscuits, also called mystery biscuits, is mayonnaise. It may sound odd, but just like the shortening, butter, or cream in more traditional recipes, the mayonnaise provides the fat in these biscuits. The emulsification of oil and egg yolks in mayo makes for incredibly tender biscuits, and the dough comes together with just a stir. The salt and vinegar in the mayonnaise mean that these biscuits are well seasoned and just a touch savory, and the simple drop method makes them some of the easiest biscuits we’ve ever made.

These biscuits are best with whole milk, but the recipe will work with reduced-fat milk. Don’t use nonfat. Reduced-fat mayonnaise can be used, but the biscuits will be less tender and flavorful. Don’t use fat-free mayonnaise.
