  • 2cups all-purpose flour
  • 4teaspoons baking powder
  • 2tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1teaspoon salt
  • 1⁄3cup butter or 1⁄3 cup margarine, cold
  • 3⁄4cup milk, cold


  • Preheat oven to 425 F Mix first 4 ingredients together in a bowl.
  • Cut in butter with a pastry blender or a fork, or two knives, until crumbly.
  • Add milk.
  • Stir until it forms a ball.
  • Add a bit more milk if necessary to make a soft dough.
  • Roll or pat to 1 inch thick. (I usually pat the dough).
  • Cut into circles with a biscuit cutter or a floured glass.
  • Arrange on a greased baking sheet.
  • Bake in 425 F for about 10- 12 minutes or until risen and nicely browned. (in my oven it usually takes 15 minutes).
  • This is supposed to make 12, but I almost always only get 11 biscuits, with the size of the glass that I use.
  • Variations: Try adding some fresh or dried herbs. Some good pairings are basil and oregano, or parsley and fresh ground black pepper, or thyme and garlic, or add some grated sharp or old cheddar cheese.

    Excellent biscuit recipe. It was very easy to put together. After making them I threw the biscuits into the freezer for a few minutes while my oven was preheating. It helps them bake up nice and flaky. I reduced the sugar and milk just a bit per the recommendations of other reviewers but that was the only change I made. Thanks so much for sharing Hag Chef.

    I made these tonight, and was so disapointed. They tasted good, but just didn’t rise, much. I followed the recipe exactly. I think I will try a different recipe, next time. I would like them to rise higher. They were very easy to make, and did taste good. Maybe I did something wrong.

    Great biscuits. This is a keeper according to my son and daughter. The only change that I would make is to reduce the sugar to 1 tablespoon. Other than that, light, fluffy, and good.

    These were great! I was lazy and just patted the dough into a rectangle on the pan and cut into 12 pieces. Worked great and everyone commented on how tasty they were! Excellent recipe, thanks for posting.

    These biscuits came out so good and they are so easy to make. I left out the sugar and they were delish. Great recipe!

    Delicious. Followed exactly, and had to add a little milk, but I live up north where it’s dry. Baked a little longer b/c my oven runs cold, and everyone loved ’em. Was sweet, and may not add as much sugar if they’re for savory dish, but perfect for breakfast or strawberry shortcake!

    Very very good!
    I read that some other users found these too salty or sweet, but I thought these turned out perfectly. The only change I made was I added a little bit more milk. This is definatly my new go-to recipe for biscuits!
