The simplest recipes can often be the best. Over the past few years this has become my go to recipe for biscuits. Quick to mix up, a snap to bake.
Leftovers can be tucked away in the freezer for later eating.
Baking Powder Biscuits
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 Tbsp baking powder
- 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
- 2 tsp fine sea salt
- 12 Tbsp unsalted butter
- 2 cups milk
Preheat oven to 425°.
Whisk flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a mixing bowl. Dice up butter, work into flour with fingers, until crumbly. Add in milk, sweep into a dough.
Sprinkle a bit of extra flour on a work source, knock out dough. Sprinkle a bit of flour on top, pat out into a rectangle, about an inch thick. Cut into 12 biscuits, transfer to a large non-stick rimmed baking sheet.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until turning golden on top.
Makes 12 biscuits.
