I altered this slightly from a recipe I found online. These are very yummy with sausage gravy. This makes approximately 6-12 biscuits depending on the thickness of the dough.


  1. Mix together flour, baking powder, salt and white sugar.
  2. Cut butter into the flour mixture until it resembles course crumbs.
  3. Add milk and stir. You may need to add 1-2 more tablespoons of milk.
  4. Knead 15-20 times on a lightly floured board and roll out to a 1/2 - 1 inch thickness. Use a cup or round cookie cutter to cut out into round biscuit shapes.
  5. Bake on baking stone or cookie sheet at 425 degrees for 13-15 minutes - till the edges begin to brown.

Very good biscuits! I used spelt flour, so they were hearty but still rose very well. I also used only 1/2 teaspoon of sugar. They turned out great, and I will use this recipe again.
