I love this recipe. It’s really simple, and as the name implies, they can be done really quickly. I always start by pre-heating the oven, because I can make the biscuits before the oven is done heating up. This recipe was one my grandfather used to make. I loved it as a kid – my kids love it now. I think one of the reasons I love them (other than the taste) is that you don’t have to roll the dough. I’ve made a couple changes along the way, but it’s still your basic biscuit recipe. Here you go. . .
2 cups AP flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup milk
4 tbsp. unsalted butter, room temp (or melted)
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl and whisk together. Then add the butter. Next the milk. If the dough looks a little dry, add a bit more milk.
Using an ice cream scoop, drop large scoops of the dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 12 – 15 minutes until light golden. Makes 6 large biscuits. Enjoy!
