Baking Powder Biscuits

May 27, 2020

Another "Cooking with Annie" special! This time she is making some homemade biscuits with baking powder. Who wouldn't love that? Bonus--there are several variations one can do with this recipe too! Check her page for more info on the variations.


2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon table salt

1/4 cup unsalted butter (or shortening like my Grandma used to do)

3/4 cup whole milk


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.

  2. Measure the flour, baking powder, and salt into a sifter set in a medium bowl. This is an important step because you want to add air to the mixture so the biscuits are as fluffy as possible.

  3. Use a pastry cutter to cut the shortening into the mixture until it resembles a coarse meal. Stir in any additional dry ingredients here (page xx).

  4. Add milk and any additional wet ingredients, stirring until a soft dough forms. It is important to not overmix; you’ll hard tack instead of fluffy biscuits.

  5. Turn out onto a floured board and knead 10 times, then STOP!

  6. Roll or pat out the dough until it is 1/2-inch thick. Cut with a floured 2-inch biscuit cutter. Transfer the biscuits to an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Makes 12 biscuits
