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!

What’s the reason for making your own baking powder? Whether you’re in a pinch or wanting to control what’s in your food, having this recipe on hand in convenient and easy. Some commercial baking POWDERS contain aluminum which can be detrimental to your health, particularly your brain. You can buy aluminum free versions, but it’s not uncommon for them to cost more. Check out your local prices on aluminum free baking powder and cream of tartar. If you can’t find a good, cheap source for cream of tartar it may be best, financially speaking, to buy aluminum free baking powder.
