These biscuits are easy and quick to make and they taste very delicious. I studied a lot of recipes for biscuits and created my own. Now, the biscuit has a wonderful twin named the Garlic Cheese Biscuit…and I’ll share that recipe later with you. These biscuits never seem to brown like some biscuits, but they taste amazing…especially with apple butter.
Total time: 19 minutes
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 9 minutes
Serves: 4-6 people
Yield: 12 – 2 1/2 inch biscuits
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 cup butter or 1/2 cup margarine
- 3/4 cup milk
Preheat oven to 450.
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder.
Cut butter/margarine into cubes and cut into flour mixture. You can use a fork or a dough tool. Mix until it resembles corn meal.
In the bottom of the flour mixture, make a well in which to pour the milk.
Pour the milk into the well and work with fingers until you get the dough.
On a floured surface, roll the dough to a 1/4 inch thickness.
Use a 2 1/2 inch biscuit cutter to cut biscuits. You can also use a drinking glass for the shape.
Place the cut biscuits on a greased and floured pan and bake for 9-10 minutes.
The biscuits WILL NOT brown like normal biscuits. Take one of the biscuits and carefully pull apart to make sure they are completely baked.
