I have tried many of a biscuit recipe... I think this is the best one yet.

Number of Servings: 16


    3 cups Flour
    4- teaspoons Baking Powder
    2 Tablespoons Sugar
    teaspoons Cream Of Tartar
    teaspoons Salt
    cups Butter, Cold
    1 whole Egg, Slightly Beaten
    1 cup Milk


Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Mix dry ingredients together.
Cut in cold butter, until it is pea-sized.
Mix egg and milk, pour into the dry mix.
Stir together with a fork.
Combine all the dry mix with the wet mixture until it forms a soft ball.
Turn out onto a floured counter.
Pat down until 3/4″ thick (rolling will keep it from being flaky).
Using a biscuit cutter (or whatever you have handy), cut biscuits out and place on an ungreased pan.
Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden and beautiful.

note: I have always laid my dough out into a rectangle and cut out square biscuits. It just seems like effective use of time and dough.

Serving Size: 16 square biscuits

Number of Servings: 16
