Baking Powder Biscuits
A quick & easy recipe that should be a staple in every home.
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tbsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 1/2 cups milk
Preheat oven to 425
In large bowl combine flour, baking powder, and salt
Use pastry cutter to cut in butter until pieces are pea-sized
Add milk all at once until dough forms a soft ball
Turn on to lightly floured board and knead just enough to form dough (do not overwork or your biscuits will be tough).
Roll out dough until it is 1/2 thick and cut out circular shapes with cup or glass OR just roll into biscuit-sized balls.
Place on ungreased baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.
Meet the breakfast crew: Tilly (13) and Tucker (6). They get up and fix the morning meal for our family while I sip coffee and direct traffic.
Making breakfast is officially Tilly’s job, but she has taken it upon herself to train Tucker as her apprentice. This works out beautifully. Not only is Tucker learning to cook and bake, but it keeps my very rambunctious, loud six-year-old busy in the morning. A blessing to the whole house.
Busy, productive hands are staying out of trouble hands.
And just in case you’re wondering, I’ll share the recipe.
