I am so in love with biscuits. I grew up on biscuits and gravy, and there is nothing like that delicious smell of fresh baked biscuits.
I do still buy canned biscuits from the store every once in awhile, but I wanted a recipe that I could just make on the fly when there’s not enough money in the budget for canned. Plus, they taste SO much better!
I found this recipe on AllRecipes awhile ago, and it’s such a simple recipe with ingredients I always keep on hand! Smother these biscuits with gravy, break them in half for a breakfast sandwich, or just eat plain. All of them.
What you need:
Place the dry ingredients into a mixer and mix until just blended.
Cut in the butter, a little bit at a time, until the flour mixture becomes a bit coarse like shown above. Pour the milk in slowly until the dough just starts to peel off the bowl.
The original recipe calls for one cup of milk, but I found it only takes 1/2 to 3/4 of the cup. Any more than that and it’s just too sticky to work with.
Place the dough on a floured surface and knead a few times, then roll out the dough and use a round cutter to make about 12 biscuits.
Why yes, I’m using an empty tuna can to cut my biscuits. Perfectly shaped, and frugal!
Place the cut biscuits onto a greased baking pan and bake for 13-15 minutes at 425 degrees.
The tops look a little light, but they’re perfectly done!
What a great way to start off my morning!
