Southern Biscuits

Are you a fan of biscuits too? We just looooooove them, and make them at every given opportunity 😀

They are quick and easy to make, and tastes delicious – what’s not to love about that? Furthermore, they can be served as a side dish for almost any kind of meat, but our favorite is definitely to serve the biscuits with sausage gravy – the perfect comfort food on a tired and lazy sunday 🙂

Another great thing about these biscuits is, that you don’t need a knife to cut them in half – you just place one hand on the bottom and the other hand on top of the biscuit and twist it – nice and easy!

 

Ingredients (12 biscuits)

2 1/2 cups + 2 tbsp. flour

2 1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tbsp. granulated sugar

1/2 cup cold butter, cut into small pieces

3/4 cup milk

2 large eggs

In a large mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Cut the butter into the dry ingredients and whisk until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Beat 1 of the eggs slightly and add to the mixture together with milk. Knead until just combined and it has a sticky and moist texture.

Place the dough on a slightly floured surface. Knead until smooth.

Roll out the dough to about 1/2 inch thickness. Fold the dough halfway over and roll again. Do this 4-5 times. Be careful not to roll all the air out of the dough. Cut the biscuits with a 2 1/2 inch cookie cutter.

Place the biscuits close together on a piece of baking paper. Beat the last egg slightly and brush the top of the biscuits.

Bake at 400F for about 15 minutes or until the tops are golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.

Serve warm with cold butter, or even better, with our country style sausage gravy 🙂
