Tea Biscuits

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by Rhonda J

Growing up Mom always (and still does) served these hot out of the oven with our beef stew. We slathered them with lots of butter & molasses and now the two recipes just go together! We can't have beef stew without them now! I cut them fairly thick for a nice fluffy biscuit. Also good with butter & strawberry jam!

These were delicious,I put in less sugar and used them for dinner with chili and strawberry shortcake.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all dry ingredients together.
  2. With pastry blender cut in butter.
  3. Add milk and mix well to form dough.
  4. Knead just a few times until smooth on a floured surface.
  5. DO NOT overwork, handle as little as possible.
  6. Roll to desired thickness and cut with a floured cutter or bottom of drinking glass.
  7. (I tend to cut them fairly thick so I never get the maximum 14 biscuits, more like 10-12!).
  8. Bake at 375 for 12-13 minutes.
  9. (I find it only takes about 10 minutes in my particular oven).
