Perfect Biscuit Recipe
2 cups sifted flour4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup milk
Preheat oven to 425. Sift together the dry ingredients. Blend in the butter using 2 knives or a pastry blender until it resembles a coarse corn meal. You can add 1 or 2 more tablespoons for butter for a richer biscuit.
Make a well in the center of the flour mixture, pour in liquid and stir vigorously with a fork for 30 seconds. Then turn it onto a floured board and knead for 30 seconds.
Roll the dough with a lightly floured rolling pin or pat it out to the desired thickness. About 1/4 -1/2 inch. Cut the dough with a biscuit cutter—straight down, don’t twist! Brush the tops with milk or melted butter and bake 1/2 inch apart on a greased baking sheet for 7-15 minutes.
