Flaky Buttery Biscuits

Piping hot, out of the oven, slathered with sweet cream butter & blueberry preserves. With a start like that, any day would be good. Surprise your household with these during the week, what a treat! Here's how to make it happen...

Flaky Buttery Biscuits
Mad Hungry
Lucinda Scala Quinn

  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 6 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 3/4 cup milk

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder,and salt. Using a fork, combine the butter and flour mixture until they resemble a coarse meal. Slowly add the milk, stirring with a fork, to the desired consistency. Turn dough out onto a clean, lightly floured surface (cutting boards work wonders) and gently knead just to bring the dough together. Carefully roll out the dough to about 3/4-1" thick. Using a glass or biscuit cutter, cut biscuits and re roll scraps to use as well. Place on lined baking sheet, bake for 13-15 minutes until golden brown.
