Big Daddy Biscuits

READY IN: 45mins
YIELD: 9 biscuits




  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
