I had brunch with Sarah M, my lovely poet friend on Saturday morning. I made my biscuits.
So good, not too dense or dry. They're just right.
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1.5 tsp salt
2 tbl sugar
.25 cup cold butter cut into small chunks
.25 cup buttermilk (if I don't have it I just put in milk)
.25 cup half and half
Preheat oven to 450. Mix together dry ingredients and then with your fingers mash in the butter to the flour mixture coating it in the flour. Then mix in buttermilk and half and half. Spoon mixture onto greased baking sheet. You should have enough to make 8 biscuits. Bake for 20 minutes or until brown on top.
