Debi's Mile High Biscuits

Deborah McIntyre


I love these biscuits! They're great on their own as your "bread" with a meal, with stews, or biscuits and gravy. They're moist, fluffy, and easy to make.

How to Make Debi's Mile High Biscuits


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Combine first 5 ingredients in a medium size bowl, and mix well with a fork or whisk.
  2. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal.
  3. Measure milk into a bowl. Add egg, and whisk until beaten together.
  4. Add milk mixture to flour mixture, stirring with a spoon until dry ingredients are moistened.
  5. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured board or countertop and knead 8-10 times. Roll or pat out dough to 1 inch thickness. Cut with a biscuit cutter (2 or 2 1/2 inches in diameter). Place biscuits on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes or till golden brown. This recipe makes about 15 biscuits.
