Basic Biscuits

  • 2 cups all purpose flour sifted, plus some for rolling
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder, sifted
  • 4 tbsp. butter, diced
  • 2 eggs
  • 7 tablespoons milk
  • 1 beaten egg to glaze


  1. combine flour, baking powder and butter
  2. add eggs and milk (originally the recipe called for 1 egg, but it was so dry that I added two, use your discretion)
  3. roll out on a floured surface to about 3/4 in. thickness
  4. cut with a biscuit cutter or a drinking glass
  5. lightly grease baking sheet and transfer
  6. use beaten egg to glaze
  7. bake for 8-10 minutes on 425

We served this with Chunky Beef Stew, which you can find my recipe for on this blog to the right.
