Servings: 12
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1⁄3 cup butter or 1/3 cup margarine, cold
  • 3⁄4 cup milk, cold
  • Preheat oven to 425 F Mix first 4 ingredients together in a bowl.
  • Cut in butter with a pastry blender or a fork, or two knives, until crumbly.
  • Add milk.
  • Stir until it forms a ball.
  • Add a bit more milk if necessary to make a soft dough.
  • Roll or pat to 1 inch thick. (I usually pat the dough).
  • Cut into circles with a biscuit cutter or a floured glass.
  • Arrange on a greased baking sheet.
  • Bake in 425 F for about 10- 12 minutes or until risen and nicely browned. (in my oven it usually takes 15 minutes).
  • This is supposed to make 12, but I almost always only get 11 biscuits, with the size of the glass that I use.
