Becky's Best Biscuits

266

After I was first married, I spent many years searching for that ever-elusive amazing biscuit recipe, and this is a combination of ingredients and tips that I have found that work together to produce some of the best homemade biscuits you'll ever try!

10
2 cups flour
2 tablespoons sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup cold butter
3/4 cup milk
Preheat oven to 425 degrees, grease baking sheet with shortening (this is the first secret tip--it adds an awesome slightly crunchy bottom to these flaky biscuits). Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt, stir to combine. Cut in butter with a fork until the chunks of butter are roughly the size of large peas, you don't have to make the butter super fine. Add milk and stir until the dough comes together. Turn dough out onto floured surface and knead 10 times. Next, pat out dough to about 1/2 to 3/4 inch thickness (this is secret number 2, patting out makes the biscuits less tough than rolling & you don't have to worry about washing the rolling pin ;) ). These guys rise a good bit, so pat out according to desired your desired thickness, I like them a little on the thicker side, so I usually pat out closer to 3/4 inch. Place on greased pan and bake in hot oven for 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven and enjoy!
