Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, sift together dry ingredients. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse oatmeal. Make a well in the center of the dry mixture and pour in the milk. Stir until dough begins to pull together then turn out onto a lightly floured surface.
  3. Press dough together and then roll out until 3/4 inch thick. Cut into 2 inch round biscuits and place on an ungreased baking sheet.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes, or until golden.

These have worked for me EVERY time I've made them. The only thing I do different is roll the dough a little thinner, then fold over once and cut as usual. This creates a natural "center" that the biscuit opens right to. Love this with honey on top.

Perfect biscuits! Firm enough to stand up to a dousing of gravy, but moist and fluffy enough to eat with jam. For those who are having trouble with these biscuits, flour makes a world of difference in a biscuit recipe. If you live in the South, try White Lily or another low protein flour. If you live in the North or West, replace 2-3 Tbsp of all purpose flour with cake or Wondra flour for the best results. Northern flour, especially the nicer brands, have too much protein to make a good biscuit.

These are nice and light biscuits. I used 1-cup of buttermilk in place of the 3/4-cup Milk and they were delicios! "Never Fail" stands up to its promise! I recommend using these for berry shortcakes or topped with a peach and some juice, with a dollop of whipped cream. This is a keeper!
