BUTTER BISCUITS, like Grandma made

I decided that Biscuits should be my first recipe to share with you, since they are one of the first things I remember making with my Grandmother. This recipe also win a Blue Ribbon at the New Mexico State Fair.


Preheat oven to 450F. Mix together into a large bowl

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt

Cut into dry ingredients, using a pastry blender or a fork

6 tablespoons cold butter, cut into 6 pieces

Knead in milk a little at a time just until dough cleans sides of bowl.

2/3 cup milk

Knead lightly on a floured surface. Roll out to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with a cookie cutter or just use a knife into squares like my grandmother did. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 450F for 10 to 12 minutes. Serve warm with butter and your favorite preserves.
