I’ve been on a biscuit kick. Making biscuits with different additions and flares. I can’t help it, they feed my love of carbs & are painfully easy to make. How could I not make them? Easy for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Or those days when breakfast is served for dinner.
What You Need:
2 Cups of Flour (2 cups All Purpose or 2 Cups Bread Flour)
2.5 Teaspoons of Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon of Cracked Black Pepper
1/2 Teaspoon of Salt
4 Tablespoons of Butter
3/4 Cup of Milk
1 Tablespoon of Butter (Melted for Brushing on top)
Cook for 12–14 minutes at 400 Degrees
Makes 12 medium-large biscuits at 1 inch think
How To Put It Together:
Sift all the dry ingredients together. Sift them into a large bowl.
Add in cubed 4 Tablespoons of butter. I like unsalted butter if I make it with butter, you can also make it with butter shortening which I also like to use. However, for this recipe I decided on regular old butter. Because the world is better with butter.
Cut in the butter. You can use a fork.
Kneed & roll out the dough to about an inch thick. If you don’t have a rolling pin you can use any round item that is longer, like a bottle.
Cut out your biscuits. I don’t have a cutter that is for biscuits so I improvise & this time I used a 1/2 cup to cut out the biscuits. See I’m always thinking.
Place on an ungreased cookie sheet, brush with melted butter. Again as I wrote before butter does make the world a better place.
Cook for 12–14 minutes at 400 degrees & after eat. Eat & eat some more. Butter them more (I know I’m SO bad). Add honey or make sausage gravy & cover them. Oh, so good. I mean so good.
