Homemade Biscuits

adapted from recipe by franklymydear.hubpages.com

This recipe is the ABSOLUTE BEST recipe I have ever been able to find for homemade biscuits and believe me, I’ve made a laundry list of them.

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour [King Arthur 100% Organic]
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbs granulated sugar [raw turbinado]
  • 1/3 cup of butter or shortening [Organic Valley]
  • 1 cup of milk [almond milk]
  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients.
  3. Cut in the butter/shortening — in other words, cut up the butter/shortening into cute little square pats and put them into the bowl. Then, mix in the butter/shortening (hands work best for this) until what’s in the bowl resembles coarse meal.
  4. Gradually stir in the milk until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl. If your dough seems too sticky, add a tablespoon or two more flour. If it’s too dry, add more milk.
  5. Turn out the dough onto a floured surface (like your countertop).
  6. Knead the dough. You don’t want to over work it. Just until there are no sticky parts.
  7. Roll out the dough to about 1/4 inch thickness. Use a round cookie cutter (or the rim of a glass if you’re fancy like me) to punch out the biscuits.
  8. Place the cut-outs onto a pizza stone or greased cookie pan.
  9. Place pan in the oven for 13 to 15 minutes, or until the tops and edges start to brown.
