This biscuit recipe was handed down to me by my mom – a fabulous Southern cook. She taught me a lot of what I know about good, down-home soul food – food that not only feeds the body but also the soul.
Great all by themselves. Or add jam, honey, or molasses. Or make them into a breakfast sandwich with ham, egg, and cheese … or just scarf them down fresh and hot out of the oven 😉
Also perfect with chili or soup or as your go-to easy side bread for regular or special meals.
Crisp and flaky on the outside, soft and tender on the inside – can’t you just taste them now! Make them today – your family will thank you over and over again (and beg for more after they’re all gone …)
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup butter, cut in small pieces
- 1 cup milk
- Preheat oven to 400 F.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Add butter in smallish pieces.
- With your hands (or a pastry blender), combine flour mixture and butter until butter is pea sized and mixture is crumbly.
- Pour in milk and combine with a wooden spoon until well incorporated, taking care not to over mix.
- Turn out onto a floured surface and roll out dough to about 3/4 inch thick.
- Add to un-greased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes or until browned.
