Easy Biscuits II

As has been noted biscuits are one of the most basic recipes to be found. That said, as unique as we each are, so are the implementations and variations on basic recipes!

Basic Biscuits
(makes 8-9)

2 cups flour
1 Tblsp baking powder
1 Tblsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, COLD
3/4 cup whole milk, half 'n half, or heavy cream

Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. With a wire pastry blender cut in precut butter slices till look like coarse crumbs~don't over mix! Add liquid and lightly mix with dessert fork. Once dough begins to come together use one hand to gently cup/palm/gather dough into loose ball. Then gently press out on floured surface and cut with biscuit cutter.

Place on cookie sheet and bake at 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes till just beginning to golden.
