Servings: 8
  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 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.
  1. Pre-heat oven to 450 °
  2. Sift flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.
  3. Add butter and cut into flour (like you do for pie).
  4. The consistency should be like little peas.

  5. Add the milk and stir with a fork until incorporated. (Don't over mix)!
  6. Form a ball and roll the dough out on a floured surface unitl 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.
  7. Using a biscuit cutter or glass  top, cut out biscuits.
  8. Place on cookie sheet and bake 8-10 minutes until lightly brown.
