GFE ft Biscuits (E)
Hey guys! I realized to my horror that I have not posted my favorite recipe-BISCUITS! I absolutely love biscuits. This recipe comes from The Joy of Cooking but I like to think it's mine LOL. I actually have this recipe memorized due to making it a lot. It's super simple. To be honest, I think I might have added this biscuit recipe with the French Toast Biscuit recipe but even if I did, I want to dedicate a separate blog post to this.
1 3/4 cups of flour
2 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 teaspoon of salt
between 1/2 to 2/3 cups of milk
up to 6 tablespoons of butter (adding more in will give you a nice texture but don't over do it since you're going to use butter on it once it's done) cold is best but soft will work
The How To: 425 degrees
Combine the dry ingredients and stir. Take the butter and with a fork or other cooking instrument. If you have lumps, don't worry. IT"S OK!
Pour in the milk and stir. Flour your counter and dump your dough on it. Knead it and make sure it doesn't stick. Use your rolling pin and roll it out. Don't flatten it! If you want fluffy ones, make sure your rolled out dough isn't flat. It should be around 1/2 in.
Cut out circles with a glass or biscuit cutter. You can just use a spoon and make drop biscuits. Those work. Place on a baking sheet (no parchment needed) and bake at 400 or 425 for 8 minutes or until golden brown. Once down, place biscuits in a bowl and cover it.
