  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup butter or 1/3 cup margarine, cold
  • 3/4 cup milk, cold


  • Preheat oven to 425 F Mix first 4 ingredients together in a bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or a fork, or two knives, until crumbly. Add milk. Stir until it forms a ball. Add a bit more milk if necessary to make a soft dough.
  • Roll or pat to 1 inch thick. (I usually pat the dough). Cut into circles with a biscuit cutter or a floured glass. Arrange on a greased baking sheet.
  • Bake in 425 F for about 10- 12 minutes or until risen and nicely browned. This is supposed to make 12, but I almost always only get 11 biscuits, with the size of the glass that I use.
  • Variations: Try adding some fresh or dried herbs. Some good pairings are basil and oregano, or parsley and fresh ground black pepper, or thyme and garlic, or add some grated cheese.
