Do you love flakey, sky-high biscuits? Yeah, me too. Let’s learn how to make easy, homemade biscuits from scratch!
Like you, I’ve made a lot of biscuits in my lifetime. Many of the recipes I’ve made have been family recipes, but I’ve also made many recipes that I’ve found on-line.
But one day, I ran across this recipe and decided to give it a try. It’s called J.P.’s Big Daddy Biscuits.
So, I had to share it.
How to Make Easy, Homemade Biscuits from Scratch
Easy Biscuits from Scratch
- 2 cups All-purpose flour
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp white sugar
- 1/3 cup shortening
- 1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
Cut in shortening until the mixture resembles course meal.
Gradually stir in milk until dough pulls away from the side of the bowl.
Turn out onto a floured surface, and knead 15-20 minutes. Pat or roll dough out to 1 inch thick.
Cut biscuits with large cutter or juice glass dipped in flour. Repeat until all dough is used. Brush off the excess flour, and place biscuits onto ungreased baking sheet.
Bake for 13-15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges begin to brown.
