Nothing like a flaky warm biscuit for a hearty breakfast or simply to have a cup of coffee with some biscuits and jelly... delicious! I saw this recipe online, and decided to try it. I wasn't disappointed!
2 c. all purpose flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
6 Tbsp cold unsalted butter
2 Tbsp. melted butter
3/4 c. milk
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
In large bowl, sift or whisk together flour, powder and salt. Cut the butter, very cold, into dry ingredients until butter pieces are about the size of a pea. Add the milk and mix until just combined (texture should be sticky, moist and lumpy).
Roll the dough out on surface prepared with powdered sugar (rather than flour) into an aproximate 1 inch thickness (the more generous you are with the thickness, the bigger your biscuits will be).
Cut with lightly floured biscuit cutter and place on prepared baking sheet.
Brush each biscuit with the melted butter.
Place in oven and bake for about 10-12 minutes or longer until tops are nicely browned.
