How to make homemade biscuits

Ok so I woke up CRAVING biscuits this morning.  So all day I keep going, am I going to bake or not.  So over in my facebook group BAKE WITH ME, we had a little discussion about biscuits this afternoon and I was standing in my kitchen, looking in my pantry and realized I do not have buttermilk nor do I have whole milk!

Ok no problem let me try this with 2 percent milk cause it’s all I got…..

2 percent milk….

Can 2 percent milk really create a fluffy and or flaky biscuit?

Yes SIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So with just a few ingredients, we’ve got an incredible biscuit.

Update: we were able to get some whole milk this morning so I remade the recipe.  The bite is different, not fluffier, there is actually more of a crunch to this one.  Both still delicious!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons COLD butter
  • 3/4 cup milk

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375
  2. Measure the dry ingredients in a bowl.
  3. Cut up the COLD butter, or grate frozen butter
  4. Using a pastry cutter or fork cut the butter into the dry ingredients.
  5. Once the butter is cut into the dry ingredients, it should squeeze together in your hands.
  6. Test this.
  7. Pour in the milk and work together, with a fork or your hands.
  8. Once your dough comes together (it will be flaky), lightly dust the counter with flour.
  9. Add the dough to the flour.
  10. Gently press down the dough and fold it once.
  11. Gently press and fold the dough again.
  12. Continue this process 3 or 4 times without overworking the dough.
  13. Press the dough gently (do not use a rolling pin)
  14. Use a 2.5 or 3-inch cookie cutter to cut out the biscuits.
  15. Position your cuts as close as possible to not disturb the dough.
  16. After cutting out the first batch of dough, very carefully bring the remaining dough back together, press them together, but don't overwork the dough.
  17. Bake the biscuits for 7 mins, then turn them in the oven and bake another 5 mins.
  18. Brush with melted butter once you pull them out the oven and enjoy.
