Well it was a cold and rainy morning here so time to make some biscuits! I have not made biscuits in awhile so this was the perfect morning. Cranking up the oven to 450 degrees helps take the chill out of the house. Biscuits are pretty easy to make, just a few ingredients and no rising time as you do not use yeast for these. Gather up the ingredients and get started.Be sure to use cold butter! Cut it into pea size pieces and cut in with a pastry knife. If you do not have one, you can use 2 forks. Continue until you have a grainy mixture and the butter is evenly distributed.Add milk and stir until soft dough forms. If it is too sticky, add 1T of flour at a time. Careful not to add too much or the biscuits will be dry.Roll out dough to 1/2 inch thickness and cut out. Gather scraps and continue until all biscuits are cut out.Place on parchment covered pan and toss in 450 degree oven.Bake for 10-12 minutes and top is golden brown. That is it! You have some fresh homemade biscuits.I cooked up some eggs and smoked sausage to make the biscuit sandwich. A great breakfast for a cold and rainy morning. Cheers!
2 cups gluten free flour – I use cup4cup brand
1 T baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter cold, cut into pea-sized cubes
3/4 cup milk
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and butter. Using a pastry cutter, cut in butter until a coarse meal develops and butter is evenly distributed.
Add milk and stir until a soft dough forms. If the dough is sticky, add more flour 1 tablespoon at a time.
Turn the dough out on to a lightly floured surface and knead for 20 seconds, adding flour if the dough becomes sticky.
Roll out to 1/2-inch thick and cut out biscuits with a biscuit cutter. Press together uncut dough and continue rolling and cutting biscuits.
Bake until lightly golden brown on top and fragrant, about 10 to 12 minutes.
