    Milkman's Daughter's Note:

    This recipe is from the All Recipe site by John Pickett with lots of great reviews. These biscuits are exactly what I was looking for. I modified the recipe just a bit due to suggestions by some of his reviewers and it worked great for me also. Thanks to him I can now bake biscuits I like! I'm going to make some ahead for the freezer since we liked this recipe so well.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 9



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
    2. 2
      In large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Cut in the 1/3 Cup of butter (I cut the butter into very small cubes and then used a pastry blender) until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Gradually stir in the milk until dough pulls away from the side of the bowl.
    3. 3
      Turn out onto a floured surface, and knead 15 to 20 times (I didn't actually do this, I just patted it into a nice smooth mound and then flattened with my hands to the thickness I wanted - about 3/4 inch thick). Cut into biscuits (I used about a 2 inch size). Brush off excess flour and place biscuits onto a lightly sprayed baking pan (I use lightly sprayed foil for easy cleanup). Brush tops of biscuits with melted butter.
    4. 4
      Bake for 10-15 minutes (depending on your oven - I baked mine for about 10 minutes). I actually lift a biscuit off the pan and see if the bottoms are a nice light golden brown and then I remove from oven. I had about 9-10 biscuits from this mix.

      These are definitely easy to make. They were tender and flaky, but they didn't rise up very much. I made exactly as written using the personal notes that were in the parentheses. I would give them 5 stars for the ease and 4 stars for appearance and taste. Made for PAC Spring 2012.
