I always thought that making things from scratch was difficult. I didn’t think that I could cook or make things homemade for most of my adult life. The older I get, I am finding this to be untrue. Cooking from scratch doesn’t have to be complicated or require a list of ingredients you can’t pronounce. Ha! It can be as simple as whipping up a batch of biscuits for a simple and slow Saturday morning. I found this simple homemade biscuit recipe years ago, and the recipe comes out perfect every time. I have yet to create a batch of these biscuits that have failed. They are always perfectly flaky and exactly how I remember them tasting in my Great Grandma Smith’s kitchen. Enjoy!
Simple Homemade Biscuits
- 2 cups Flour
- 4 tsp Baking Powder
- 1/4 tsp Baking Soda
- 1 tsp Sugar
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1/3 cup Butter, Cold & Cut Into Tiny Cubes
- 3/4 cup Whole Milk
- Wisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt together in a bowl.
- Cut the butter into the flour mixture until you get a somewhat crumbly texture. You will see small bits of butter, pea size.
- Stir the milk into the crumbly mixture a little bit at a time. It should start to pull away from the bowl.
- Place dough on a lightly floured surface.
- Kneed dough 10x making sure to NOT overwork the dough!
- Roll dough to 1" think sheet.
- Cut the dough with a biscuit cutter. It should yield 8 biscuits.
- Bake @ 450° for 8-10 minutes.
