This recipe is a slight variation of the basic Bisquick biscuit recipe. I'm not sure when my family adopted this recipe but Bisquick has been on the market since 1931 and it's probable that this "easy way" to make biscuits was discovered shortly after it was available.
This year when we went home for the holidays my mom decided to introduce the next generation to the process and taught three year old Obie how to make them. It was fun to see and surprising how quickly she caught on. The recipe is about as easy as it gets but there are a couple of equally easy missteps that can make the biscuits turn out like hockey pucks.
...but I suppose we can now say for sure it's so easy a three year old can do it.
