Why I Love This Recipe

Everyone is entitled to the sanctity of a good biscuit! Perfect every time, and a super easy method.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
1/4 tsp. sugar
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
1/3 cup milk


Preheat oven to 450°F. Sift flour, baking powder, salt, cream of tartar and sugar in medium bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resemblescoarse crumbs.

Add milk; stir with fork or spatula until soft dough forms.

Place on lightly floured surface; knead 8 to 10 times or until smooth. Pat

dough lightly into 6-inch square. Cut evenly into 9 pieces. Place on

ungreased baking sheet.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with honey.


Cheese Biscuits - Add 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese to dry ingredients.


These biscuits are very light and flaky, because the method used to pat into a square and cut into thirds lengthwise and crosswise means that you don't have to handle the dough a lot. The less you handle biscuit dough, the better.
