Growing up I always thought making biscuits from scratch was really hard, and it can be. That is why for years I have been buying and eating canned biscuits that all I have to do is bake.
Well I decided recently to try my hand at baking more breads, and I thought the first step was biscuits. I searched the Internet for a good recipe and after trying a few m, I came up with my recipe that I love.
2 1/4 cups flour
1 1/4 Tbsp baking powder
1 Tbsp sugar
1 Tsp salt
1/3 cup butter (I like it melted)
1 cup milk
I mix all the ingredients together and when fully mixed I place the ball of dough on my floured pastry mat.
You will then knead the dough about 15-20 times. Basically folding it over and pushing it down. I find adding flour at each fold over helps to reduce sticking.
Once done, I used my rolling pin to roll out the dough to about 1/2 inch and cut out biscuits with my biscuit cutter. I like large biscuits, but you can make them any size. At this point you can swipe the tops with a little butter, or just bake them as is. This time I opted for no butter, but buttered tops are also really good.
The end results were really tasty and the whole process took me no more than about 20 minutes. Now I can proudly say I know how to make homemade biscuits and I may not purchased canned biscuits again.
