After such a crazy week and weekend, I think it’s time to celebrate with a bit of comfort food. Here’s my mother’s recipe for some plain old biscuits. Nothing fancy, but it’s a simple recipe with reliable results.
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. In a good-sized bowl, add 2 cups of flour, 4 teaspoons of baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 1 1/2 tablespoons of sugar. Stir the dry ingredients together, then cut in 1/2 cup of cold (as in refrigerated, not frozen) butter. Once those ingredients are relatively mixed, add 1 beaten egg and 2/3 cup of milk. After that’s all stirred into dough, dump onto a floured board. Knead for approximately one minute, then roll it out to 1 inch thickness. Cut with a biscuit cutter or drinking class of desired size. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes. Tastes awesome with butter and honey.
