Welcome Fall! Tonight it decided to rain and well it sounded like a perfect night for a hearty soup with some biscuits. I’m not a huge fan of using packaged biscuits so I decided to try my hand at making some biscuits from scratch. I will not confirm or deny that flour ended up all over my kitchen and my preggo belly that kept getting in the way! It was fun and very easy!
|Homemade Biscuits Using All-Purpose Flour|
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 8 tablespoons butter, cubed (I used margarine since it’s all I had)
- 3/4 cup milk, (more or less as needed)
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
- In a cast iron skillet, butter the bottom of the pan. I sprayed a little oil spray before placing the butter into the pan for added protection.
- In a large bowl combine your dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut the butter into the mixture until it looks like cornmeal.
Make a well in the mixture and slowly add in milk to the middle. Knead the dough with your fingers and add milk as necessary. It should form a ball. (Don’t knead too much, just enough for it to form.)
Roll out the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Thickness is up to you, just keep in mind the cooking time will need to be adjusted.
Cut with a small biscuit cutter or the top of a wine glass, you can improvise! Place into buttered cast iron skillet. Brush tops with melted butter. Bake for 12 minutes until golden brown.
