Grandma’s Biscuits

Certainly! Here’s a recipe for Grandma’s Biscuits:


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into small pieces
  • 3/4 cup milk


  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt until well combined.
  3. Add the cold, diced butter to the dry ingredients. Use a pastry cutter or your fingertips to cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. The butter should be well distributed throughout the flour.
  4. Make a well in the center of the mixture and pour in the milk. Stir gently with a fork until the dough comes together. Be careful not to overmix.

  1. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead it a few times until it becomes smooth. Be careful not to overwork the dough as this can result in tough biscuits.
  2. Roll out the dough to about 1/2 inch (1.3 cm) thickness. Use a biscuit cutter or a round cookie cutter to cut out biscuits. Place the biscuits onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving a small amount of space between each one.
  3. Gather the scraps of dough, knead them together, and roll out again to cut out more biscuits until all the dough is used.
  4. Bake the biscuits in the preheated oven for about 12-15 minutes, or until they turn golden brown on top.
  5. Remove the biscuits from the oven and transfer them to a wire rack to cool slightly before serving.
  6. Serve warm with butter, jam, or your favorite accompaniment.

Enjoy your homemade Grandma’s Biscuits!
