Basic Biscuits

We all love biscuits.  Especially because they are so quick to make.  Because I am lazy, I don't make lovely rolled and cut biscuits. I make drop biscuits.  They may not look quite as pretty, but they taste great at really, take like 20 minutes, start to finish. That is my kind of recipe. 

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup butter

  • 1 cup milk

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).

  • In a large mixing bowl sift together flour, baking powder and salt. 

  • Grate butter into mixture and stir well. 

  • Pour milk into flour mixture while stirring with a fork. Mix in milk 
  • until dough is soft, moist and pulls away from the side of the bowl.

  • Drop biscuits on ungreased baking sheets and bake in preheated 
  • oven until golden brown, about 10 minutes.
