I ran across this recipe this morning about 7 am when I was searching for something to make for breakfast. I love my biscuits and you all should know this by now. I mean how many biscuit recipes can a girl have on her blog? When I was reading this recipe being the Southern gal that I am I was thinking is this guy crazy 1 tablespoon of baking powder. I have tried baking powder biscuits before and they sure did not impress me. The baking powder gave this biscuit quite a fluff hence the name.
I have to admit these little babies can hold their own next to my grandmas buttermilk biscuits for sure (shh, do not tell her). Now like all biscuits remember the LESS you handle the dough the better biscuit you will get. Handing too much will result in a flat and hard rock.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon white sugar
1/3 cup butter
1 cup milk
1. Pre-heat oven to 425F. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Gradually stir in milk until dough pulls away from the side of the bowl.
2. Pat or roll dough out to 1 inch thick. Cut biscuits with a large cutter or juice glass dipped in flour. Repeat until all dough is used. Brush off the excess flour, and place biscuits onto an un-greased baking sheet.
3. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges begin to brown.
