I'm very excited to finally find a biscuit recipe that works for me! Biscuits have never been my strong point, so I never make them from scratch, but have you read the label on any brand of biscuits from the store? Ick! I had made the decision to either learn how to make them or we wouldn't have them at all.
Well since we love biscuits, not having them wasn't an option, so......I scouted all over Pinterest to find a recipe that worked for me and here it is:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon of sugar
1 Tablespoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
8 Tablespoons butter, chopped
3/4 cup of milk
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix up your flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together. Cut the butter into your flour mixture until it begins to look like cornmeal.
Make a well in your flour mixture and slowly add small portions of the milk. Use your fingers to knead the milk into the flour mixture. Continue to add small portions of milk until it is mixed in.
Roll out your dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll out to desired thickness.
Cut out with small biscuit cutter or glass rim.
Butter the bottom of your pan (I use my cast iron skillet) and then put biscuits in the pan.
Bake for about 12 minutes or so, until they are golden brown.
