1/2 Photos of Basic Baking Powder Biscuits (Modified for Stand Mixers)
These biscuits are light inside, slightly crispy on the outside. They are terrific for breakfast served as biscuits topped with a hearty sausage gravy (such as Sawmill Gravy recipe #: 56251) or as an accompaniment to any stew or "meat and potatoes" type dinner. (Note: Mixer speed settings are for KitchenAid stand mixers; adjust accordingly for the brand of mixer that you will be using)
