This recipe is totally tried and true and is probably my favorite go to recipe for biscuits.
Once all of my ingredients are gathered up, I like to cut my butter into smaller chunks so that the food processor can mix it easier. If you don’t have a food processor that’s ok, you can use a fork to mix the butter into the flour mixture. Here is the recipe:
2 cups unbleached flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup butter
2/3-3/4 cup milk
In a bowl add flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut your butter into small chunks. If you are using a food processor cut them into about 8 pieces. Add the butter and flour mixture into the food processor and pulse until the butter is well blended. If you are not using a food processor, cut the butter into even smaller pieces, and use a fork to smash the butter into the flour mixture until it is well incorporated. Once the flour and butter is mixed, add 2/3 cup milk. Mix just until it forms a dough. Add more milk if you feel the dough is too dry. Remove dough from bowl and knead it 8-10 times. Divide the dough into 6 equal portions and form them into a round disk about 3/4 inch thick and about 3.5 inches in diameter. Place biscuits on an ungreased cookie sheet evenly spaced out. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees and bake for 8-12 minutes or until they are golden brown. -Enjoy!
