Nothing beats the smell of fresh baked biscuits in the morning! I recently made these per Hubby’s birthday breakfast request. The come together easily and don’t make a huge batch which I loved since biscuits are best eaten right away. The only recommendation I would make is brush on some melted butter on top before baking them. I really liked how light and fluffy they are. I didn’t even use a rolling pin just patted down and shaped the ball.
Baking Powder Biscuits
(Adapted from Miss Mary Bobo’s Boarding House Cookbook by Pat Mitchamore)
2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
3 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons butter (or shortening, or a combination of both)
¾ cup milk
In a medium bowl sift the flour with the baking powder and salt.
Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse cornmeal.
Stir the milk into the mixture until the dough forms a ball.
Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and several times. Roll with a floured rolling pin to ½ inch thickness. Cut with a 2-inch biscuit cutter and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 450 degrees F for 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
