Breakfast, and my favorite biscuit recipe.



Old Fashion Baking Powder Biscuits

2 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup milk (buttermilk is the best)

Heat the oven to 450.

Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.

Cut in butter with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs with some pea-sized pieces. Add milk and sit with a fork until clumps form, making slightly stick dough.

Place dough on a well floured work surface. Coat your hands with flour and knead gently 8 to 10 times. until the dough just holds together and is no longer sticky.

Gently pat dough into a 9 inch round at least 1/2 inch think, lifting dough occasionally so it doesn’t stick to the surface. Cut 2 1/2 inch biscuits with a biscuit cutter (or just use to top of a glass).

Place biscuits about 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Press and remaining scraps together and cut into biscuit sized pieces.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.

These are also really good if you add in some cheese and use garlic salt in place of regular. Also, I don't roll mine out quite as much as this recipe calls for. I like them a little taller.


  1. Yummy!!!!!! I wish I had patience to make my own biscuits and these look easy!! There are only two of us in the house though so I wonder if I can make a big batch and freeze some? Then I could take a few out everyday and toast them up.

  2. Yum! Thanks for sharing this - I'll print it and add to my file for the next time I crave biscuits

  5. i was thinking about biscuits today...these look perfect.

  6. I made these tonight and they did not get big like yours did. I followed the recipe and I wonder what I did wrong? How many was it suppose to make?

  7. kaycee:

    this recipe makes 8, give or take. I probably should have stated that I don't roll mine out as thin as this recipe calls for, because I like them a little bigger.

  8. Hello Hannah! I've been enjoying your blog from the Bay Area, CA. It always brightens my day.
