Recipe Cupboard – BUTTER BISCUITS – Don’t Lose This


2 cups all-purpose flour, packed (if using self-rising flour, omit baking powder and salt)
1 Tablespoon baking powder (leave out if using self-rising flour)
½ teaspoon salt (leave out if using self-rising flour)
½ cup butter, salted, cut in small pieces (if using unsalted, add ¼ tsp more salt than above)
1 cup milk (regular or buttermilk) you can make your own buttermilk (1 tablespoon white vinegar to 1 cup milk)
Oven 400 degrees
Mix Flour, baking powder, salt, together and cut in butter to this mixture until coarse.
Add milk and mix fast and do not knead.  It is important to not knead and do not over mix.
Roll out dough on a lightly floured board.  Cut with biscut cutter or glass.  Bake 10-12 minutes until golden brown.
My Grandma always greased or buttered the tops of her biscuits before baking.  Enjoy!
