Say goodbye to those biscuit tins that make you jump every time you have to squeeze them to pop them open. These baking powder biscuits are simple and delicious and take just as much time to prepare as the refrigerated Pillsbury Doughboy brand.
I love biscuits and could eat them with almost anything. I make them to go with soups, comfort foods (including Red Gravy and Rice), and of course with any kind of breakfast or brunch. These biscuits are easy to make and only require five ingredients! So pull out your flour, salt, baking powder, butter, and milk and let's get to baking!
In a mixing bowl, combine two cups of flour, a teaspoon of salt, and four teaspoons baking powder.
Cut four tablespoons of butter into small cubes and message into the flour mixture using your hands until mostly incorporated and it resembles coarse meal.
Pour three quarters cup of milk into the meal and stir with wooden spoon until the dough begins to clump and feels moist and tacky. You may need to add an additional quarter cup of milk to reach the right consistency.
Roll out the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead with your hands for about a minute. Pat the dough out into a one inch thick disc.
Using a round cookie cutter, cut the dough into rounds and place on a baking stone or cookie sheet.
Bake in the oven at 400 F for 12 minutes or until the tops begin to turn a light golden brown. Serve immediately.

Most of the time, I follow someone else's recipe when I cook. But sometimes I like to experiment with a recipe I create. When I do, I make sure to share my creations with you.
