just a quick recipe today! Things are starting to get busy around here with school beginning soon, so today I just have a quick and easy biscuit recipe.
- 2 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 2/3 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1/2 cup butter
- A cup of buttermilk or sour milk (which is a ratio of one cup milk to one tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice)
Start out by mixing your front ingredients. Cut in your butter until resembling crumbs. I use a hand pastry blender for this. Add milk slowly, mixing with a fork, until everything is just combined. It should use a little less than the full cup. Next, turn out your dough on a floured area and knead a few times. Pat to about 3/4 inch thick and use a cookie cutter to cut out rounds.
I really enjoy these easy biscuits, especially with butter or jam or both! They pair very well with a cup of tea, too. I like how useful biscuits are- a part of any meal. A side at dinner, a star at breakfast, or even a sandwich for lunch.
