Baking Powder Biscuits

Whenever family comes into town to visit they demand that my husband makes biscuits.  They are thick biscuits that have plenty of room for butter and my mom’s homemade jam! I have decided to share this recipe so that you can all share in the joy of a yummy homemade biscuit.

Homemade Biscuits


2 cups flour 1 stick of melted butter
2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 – 3/4 cup of milk


Mix all of your dry ingredients together.  Add your melted butter and mix.  When thoroughly mixed add 1/2 cup of milk for flakier biscuits or 3/4 cup of milk for a more moist biscuit.  Dust counter with flour and roll out your dough to 3/4 inch thick.  Cut your biscuits with a biscuit cutter, or you could use a glass to cut your biscuits.  Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes at 450 degrees.
