Flaky Baking Powder Biscuits

Posted on
I decided to make my family some baking powder biscuits for breakfast this morning. I did a quick internet search & looked over several different recipes. This one came from the Food Network. I didn’t have the luxury of time, so I made a few alterations & used my mixer.  My kids LOVED the results.
This works so well in a Bosch mixer – I can’t say enough good about mine. The original recipe is made by hand, but a mixer makes these so much quicker, & the lid on my Bosch kept everything inside the bowl. If using a mixer, be very careful not to overmix as that will produce ‘hockey pucks’. I understand that it is a ‘gluten thing’.I decided to make my family some baking powder biscuits for breakfast this morning Flaky Baking Powder Biscuits

2 c. flour
1 T. baking powder
1 t. sugar
1 t. salt
7 T cold unsalted butter, sliced
3/4 c. milk

Pre-heat panggangan to 450*, & place rack in the center of the oven.

Whisk flour, baking powder, sugar & salt in mixer until evenly combined.
Add butter slices & mix until butter slices are broken into small pea sized pieces.

Slowly add milk & mix (very briefly) until mixture makes a very loose dough.

Turn out onto a well floured surface, & pat into a 1/2 inch thick rectangle.
Fold the dough into thirds like a business letter (I totally skipped this part)
Pat into a 5×8 inch rectangle about 3/4 inch thick.
Use a 2-3 inch round cutter (or drinking glass top) to make 6 biscuits. Place them on prepared sheet. Press scraps of dough together & make 2-3 more biscuits, & place on baking sheet.

Bake until lightly browned – about 15 minutes.
