grandma's cookbook - Perfect, Fluffy Biscuits!!!

Fluffy Biscuits RecipeOkay, I admit it, I have always struggled to make a perfect, fluffy biscuit. My biscuits always turned out resembling a rock more than anything you actually wanted to eat. But, I found a recipe recently and discovered, not only was it easy and quick, but the biscuits turned out fluffy and wonderful!!!! So, of course I have to share this recipe with you! :^)

Ingredients -

  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup milk
Directions -
  • combine flour, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon and salt
  • cut in butter until mixture resembles course crumbs
  • beat egg with milk and stir into dry ingredients until just moistened
  • turn onto a well-floured surface and knead 20 times, folding dough over on itself, flattening and folding again and again - very important!!! Don't skip this step!!!!
  • roll/press to 3/4 inch and cut with biscuit cutter . . . or as I do, use a heart-shaped cookie cutter for heart biscuits!
  • place on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake at 450 for 8-10 minutes
  • ENJOY!!!! :^)
The key to this biscuit is the folding of the dough over on itself, flattening and folding again and again! These biscuits turn out beyond enjoyable!

Make these with your grandchildren . . . they will have fun with the folding part - and then make some homemade chicken noodle soup and take to a shut-in! Have your grandchildren make a card and go with you to deliver the soup and biscuits and be sure to take time with them to pray for the person they are taking the food to. This is a wonderful way to help them develop a tender heart and set a pattern/habit of caring for others in tangible ways!
