Mike’s Homemade Baking Powder Biscuits Recipe
2 cups flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
5 Tbsp. margarine
1 scant cup milk
Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Cut in margarine with a fork or pastry blender until it resembles cornmeal. Add milk, stirring enough to combine ingredients. Do not over stir. Put dough on a lightly floured surface and gather into a ball. If the dough is sticky add a little flour to help form the ball. Knead lightly 5-10 times. Roll out 1/2 inch thick and cut with a biscuit cutter or a glass rim that has been dipped in flour. Put onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 425° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 10-12 baking powder biscuits.
These biscuits are a great part of a big breakfast, but they also work well with virtually any dinner menu! They only take a few minutes to prepare, so you can make a batch and let them bake while you get the rest of your meal on the table! We usually set them in a basket with a clean kitchen towel laid inside and then fold the top of the towel over the biscuits to keep them warm when they’re on the table.
