These are the biscuits my Mom has made my entire life. I only recently began making them and learned how quick, easy and delicious they are. They are one of my family's favorite homemade items. I make them when I make this homemade soup or chili or on a night when I have very limited time, I make them and serve them with canned soup. Even when the soup is not homemade, these make the meal feel special.
I usually double the recipe and get about 25 biscuits.
2 cups flour
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
1/3 cup butter (softened)
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Mix all ingredients in a bowl until just combined. On a lightly floured surface pour dough out and knead lightly. Roll out until about 1/2 inch thick and cut with biscuit cutter. (I actually use a plastic cup that is a good size.) Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 450 for 10-15 minutes or until lightly golden brown. They are good the next day warmed up as well. Enjoy!
