2 cups Flour
3 Tbsp Sugar
3 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Tsp Salt
1/4 Cup of Cold Butter (or shortening)
2/3 Cup of Cold Buttermilk (if your dough is too dry add a splash more milk)
* You could substitute regular milk if you don’t have any buttermilk
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
Sift all dry ingredients into a large bowl. Cut in Butter with a pastry cutter or if you work quick enough not to melt the butter use your fingers.
Add Milk and stir until the dough combines, add more milk if it’s still too dry.
Roll out dough until it’s 1/2″ thick.
Using a round cutter cut out your rounds . . . if you like them more rustic then just cut them into squares.
Then you arrange them on an ungreased baking sheet. Now, if you like crispy biscuits, like I do, arrange them about 1″ apart on the sheet. If you like softer biscuit arrange them so that the edges are just touching each other, I thought that was pretty cool . . . my granny taught us that!
In a 425 degree oven, bake them for anywhere from 10-13 minutes. Keep an eye on them!!
There you have it . . . biscuits worthy of any Southern Grandma.
Always served with some warm Sour Cherry Jam!!!
Lastly, I am in LOVE with these ceramic berry containers from Anthropologie!! I love it when ordinary, disposable items are made permanent. So cute and odd at the same time. I love items with a little bit of quirk to them . . . like my white ceramic gnome.
I hope you’ll try this simple biscuit recipe, they may have you say’in:
