Sometimes ya just need a good biscuit to complete a meal. Know what I mean? Talk about versatile. You can pretty much eat a good biscuit at any time of the day. In the morning with a hearty breakfast. Lunchtime with some tea and your favorite jam. Dinner with beef stew and so on. If you think about it, there’s really not much you can’t eat paired with a biscuit.
The other day I slapped together an egg, bacon and potato hash for dinner. We love us some breakfast for dinner! To compliment our hash, I decided to try my hand at some homemade biscuits for the very first time. I just had to bring my visions of eating a warm fluffy biscuit with butter melting on it to life.
And here they are… Just look at the golden tops. They were very good and quite easy to make. I even ate the leftover two the next day with grape jelly for my lunch.
Fluffy Homemade Biscuits
from Taste of Home cookbook
2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
3 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Crisco
2/3 cup milk
1. Preheat oven to 450°. In a small bowl, combine the flour, powder, sugar and salt. With a fork, cut in the Crisco until small crumbs form.
2. Beat the egg with the milk and then stir into the flour mixture til moist. Place dough on a well floured surface and knead about 20 times.
3. Roll out dough to about 3/4″ thickness and cut with a biscuit cutter. (I used the rim of a drinking glass) Place biscuit rounds onto baking sheet lined with a silicone mat.
4. Bake for 8 – 10 minutes or until tops are golden brown.
