Homemade Biscuit Recipe!

These biscuits are perfect for any meal of the day. Have them with sausage gravy for breakfast or serve them as your bread with dinner… the possibilities are endless. I tried them recently for the very first time while on our family trip to McCall. I was in charge of fixing them and I’ve only made biscuits a few other times before and that’s mostly because I’ve never found a recipe I’ve liked. However, this one takes the cake!

You can add any ‘extras’ in that you’d like, as well. Throw in a handful of cheese and some chopped bacon or paint them with garlic-herb butter when they’re fresh from the oven. However you eat them, I hope you truly enjoy them!

Biscuits

2 C Flour

1 T Sugar

1 t Salt

4 t Baking Powder

½ C Butter

2/3 C Milk

1 Egg

Pulse flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder in food processor to combine ingredients. You can also mix in an electric mixer or by hand, I just use the food processor because it gets it done in seconds!

Next add your butter which should be well chilled in the fridge or freezer. Cut into 1 inch cubes and add to food processor. Pulse in food processor with dry ingredients until butter pieces are pea sized.

(*Note: At this point you may store this in a plastic zip top bag or a container in the freezer. It will last many months. You can keep in fridge but use within a month or two. Take out at your convenience and add wet ingredients.)

Combine dry ingredients with milk and egg. All ingredients should be kept cold which helps biscuits rise.

Pour out onto well-floured surface and knead 20 times.

Roll and cut into squares or rounds.

Place closely together on baking sheet that’s been lined with a sil-pat or parchment paper.

Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 12 minutes or until cooked through and golden brown.
