This biscuit recipe was given to me from my dear mother-in-law.

biscuit Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder (aluminum free)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter (WE ONLY USE 1/3 CUP)
  • 3/4 cup milk (we use almond or rice milk)……..when my husband makes them, he uses water, and they are still good. Just saying.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450 °
  • Sift flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.
  • Add butter and cut into flour (like you do for pie).
  • The consistency should be like little peas.
  • Add the milk and stir with a fork until incorporated. (Don’t over mix)!
  • Form a ball and roll the dough out on a floured surface until the dough is about 1 – 1 1/2 inches thick. You can just make drop biscuits if you want by placing a blob of dough on the pan.
  • Using a biscuit cutter or glass  top, cut out biscuits.
  • Place on cookie sheet and bake 8-10 minutes until lightly brown.
  • Makes about 8-10 biscuits.
