  • 2 Cups All Purpose Flour Sifted
  • .33 Cups Milk I used 1%
  • .33 Cups Butter I used salted


  • Preheat oven to 425° F.
  • Combine the sifted all-purpose flour and salt in a bowl.
  • Cut in the diced, cold butter with a fork. Cutting means to leave little bits of butter throughout the flour. This will make the biscuits flaky.
  • Slowly add the milk and mix with a fork until dough is just slightly sticky.
  • I refrigerated my mix, just because I prepped ahead of time. This step is not needed.
  • Remove the dough from bowl and foldover 10 times on a floured surface. You don't want to over-mix the flour or your biscuits will turn out tough.
  • Flatten the dough using your hands until about 1/2” thick. Cut biscuits using a biscuit cutter or a glass. Tip-Alwayscut straight down and never twist or they won't rise.
  • Mine were 2 3/4” circles.
  • Place biscuits on an ungreased baking pan. I like using ceramic trays as they prevent sticking. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
