My most popular recipe on my blog by far are these Homemade Drop Biscuits and with good reason. They are a regular in my house and one that can be prepared with just a few basic ingredients and are on the table in less than 20 minutes. I love that there is no rolling out dough! This week I decided it would be fun to add a couple of ingredients to make them a perfect holiday side. Trust me, you and your family are going to love these Homemade Cranberry Orange Drop Biscuits!
I always serve my drop biscuits with honey and preserves. What better way to enjoy the delicious combination of fruit and honey than in a product that combines them both? Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Fruit Spreads provide the perfect touch of sweetness to your favorite appetizers, meals, snacks and desserts. What an easy way to simplify for the busy holiday season!
I found them at our local Walmart near the other jams, jellies and preserves located in the peanut butter aisle.
I added some refreshing Thanksgiving flavors to my drop biscuit recipe by including orange zest and fresh cranberries.
This recipe is very easy to mix up, but you will want to work fast once you add your milk and butter to your dry ingredients. Be sure to not over mix the batter so you get nice and fluffy biscuits!
Aren’t they pretty with those gorgeous fresh cranberries? These homemade biscuits are a perfect addition to your Thanksgiving table.

The Smuckers Fruit & Honey Fruit Spreads are naturally sweetened with honey and all would would work well with these biscuits. I went with the Triple Berry.
You can slice your biscuits in half with a serrated knife and top with your Smuckers Fruit & Honey Fruit Spread.
Or you can dollop some on the top. However you serve it, it is guaranteed to be delicious.
The tartness of the fresh cranberries combined with the sweetness of the Smuckers Fruit & Honey Fruit Spread is a winning combination!
