Recipe : Homemade Biscuits | Layers Of Butter & Flakey Crumbs

Hello :)


One of my favorite things in life is a biscuit. You can do anything with them; Make a sandwich out of them , pour gravy on top, or eat them like almost eating dessert by drizzling some honey on them. In any form they are my favorite. 

Don't get me started on canned biscuits they taste nothing like a real homemade biscuit; full of a lovely little thing called butter. If your in a time pinch frozen are ok but they will never live up to the truly heavenly thing that is a homemade biscuit. 


To make these you don't need much skill or many ingredients. Just a little bit of time and a whole lot of butter. Once you've mastered the art of biscuit making you'll never want to go back to frozen or god forbid the awfulness that lay in a can. 




 











Recipe:  


4 cups self rising flour

1 tsp. Baking Soda

2 Tbsp. Baking Powder 

3 sticks salted butter ( 3/4 pound) cold & grated 

2 eggs

1 1/2 cups Milk (I used 2%)


Bake at 400 °F for 15-20 mins


In a mixing bowl measure out your dry ingredients. Then take your cold sticks of butter and grate it with a cheese grater.

Once you've done that add to your dry ingredients. I then cut in the butter using a pastry cutter. Can also use a wooden spoon or your hands. After your butter is mixed into your flour mixture add in two eggs. (Note) Crack eggs into a separate bowl and whisk together. Then add into your mixing bowl. Stir it into your flour & butter mixture using a spoon or if easier your hands. It's ok to get in there and work with your hands while cooking.

Now turn out your biscuit dough onto your cleaned & floured work surface. 

To make your biscuits extra flakey. Roll your dough out until about 1/2 inch thick cutting it in half with a knife. Stack on top of each other and then fold length wise on top of its self. This will help to create beautiful buttery layers.

Now roll out until roughly 1 inch thick and cut with biscuit cutter. My cutter is on the smaller side but you can use any size biscuit cutter. 

Place on baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. My smaller biscuits baked for 15.

Let them cool off slightly and enjoy!
