1/5 Photos of Biscuits
I love making biscuits because they're so quick and within minutes you're rewarded with delicious hot bread. I found this recipe in Soroptimists' Cook Book 1976 Christmas Club by Soroptimist Club of Boise, Idaho. I used butter in place of shortening (some people say shortening is the key to a flaky biscuit that's not flat). I used the full cup of milk, but I think I would start with 3/4 cup of milk and play it by ear because I wound up adding a little flour at the end so the dough wasn't sticky. I didn't roll out the biscuit dough (never do). I just gently press the dough until I reach the thickness I want. The key is not to overhandle the dough. Just mix until it's combined so you don't wind up with hockey pucks for biscuits. I've changed the instructions from Peggy Pletcher's original recipe because her instructions were vague for a beginning cook. Thank you for a simple recipe with simple on-hand ingredients.
