READY IN: 25mins
YIELD: 8 biscuits




  • Preheat oven to 425° F.
  • Place flour, baking powder, sugar and salt into mixer bowl with flat beater. On Speed 1, stir dry ingredients for a little under a minute to evenly distribute.
  • Cut cold butter into cubes and add to mixer bowl with the dry ingredients. Turn to Stir Speed and mix about 1 minute, or until mixture resembles small crumbs a little smaller than peas. Stop and scrape bowl.
  • Add milk. Turn to Stir Speed and mix until dough starts to cling to beater. Usually less than 30 seconds. Avoid overbeating.
  • Turn dough onto lightly floured surface and gently pat the dough to 1/2-inch to 1 inch thickness. Cut with floured 2-inch biscuit cutter or floured glass.
  • Place on greased baking sheet and (optional) brush with melted butter, if desired.
  • Bake at 425° F for 12 to 15 minutes, until golden. Serve immediately.
