Biscuits

This is a simple basic biscuit recipe.  I want it on my blog so I don't have to hunt down a recipe every time my boys want biscuits.  So here it is:


2 cups flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp sugar
1/3 cup cold butter
1 cup milk

Add dry ingredients to a glass bowl. Then add the butter and with two knives or a pastry blender, cut the butter into the dry ingredients.  Now add your milk it might take a little less than a cup, might take a little more.  But you want it to be thick, not runny.  DO NOT over mix your dough, mix in the milk until it is just mixed, no more.  Flour your counter top and press the dough until it is about 1/2-3/4 inch thick.  With a biscuit cutter cut biscuits and put them into an oiled, over safe pan.  Dot the top of the biscuits with butter.  Cook 425 degrees for 13-17 minutes, tops with be just a little browned.
