Couldn’t sleep this morning, so I decided to get up and make biscuits from scratch. Not going to lie, I have never done it! I’ve made homemade tortillas, rolls, bread, etc, but never biscuits for breakfast! I found a recipe and tweaked it a tad and it turned out perfect!


EASY BISCUITS (Makes about 6-8 biscuits)

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons (one stick) butter/cubed
  • 3/4 cup milk
  1. Preheat oven to 425
  2. I sprayed my ceramic coated cast iron dutch oven with nonstick spray [you can use a regular cast iron if you have one]
  3. In a large bowl combine all the dry ingredients
    1. I didn’t “precise” measure or level off, I just scooped and went.
  4. Add butter into mixture until it starts to get a cornmeal texture.
    1. I nuked the butter to make it a little softer [about 15 seconds]
  5. Make a well and add milk
  6. Knead until dough forms [this part was super sticky and messy]
    1. I added more flour as needed
  7. Roll out dough on floured countertop
    1. You can make them as thick as you want, but I made mine about 1/2 inch thick.
  8. Use a biscuit cutter or cup to cut out biscuits and place on greased skillet and put in oven.
  9. Bake about 12-16 minutes [all ovens are different] – tops of biscuits need to be slightly golden brown.
  10. ENJOY! These are super flaky & delicious!

We paired these biscuits with homemade sausage gravy and sausage patties! Comfort food at it’s finest!

Until next time.
