Biscuits

By Persephone

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.
