Best Biscuits Ever
These biscuits are so easy, and so delicious! You can serve them in 20 minutes hot out of the oven.
- 2 cups sifted flour (10 oz.)
- 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1/2 cup cold (or frozen) butter, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
- 2/3 cup milk
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Place dry ingredients in food processor and pulse to mix. Add butter and pulse till the butter looks like peas.
Dump into a mixing bowl (electric mixer is fine, if you don’t want to use your hands). Add milk and honey and mix until it comes together.
Place on lightly floured surface (or silicone mat for easier clean-up) and knead several times to work the gluten. Then pat the dough with your fingers to about 3/4 inch high. Or you can go lower if you want more biscuits.
Cut them round or square with a biscuit cutter. Don’t use a seesaw approach as that will reduce the rise.
Place about an inch apart on baking sheet covered with baking paper.
Bake for 10 minutes at 450 degrees or until golden brown. Brush tops with melted butter.
