OK, my secret is out! I don’t REALLY spend hours baking biscuits on a Sunday morning. Who has time for that? My favorite biscuit recipe comes straight from the hallowed halls of King Arthur (flour, that is) and has just THREE ingredients! Sure, you can add 3 tablespoons of sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla to the milk to make a sweet biscuit. Or you can brush melted butter over the tops of the biscuits before and/or after baking. Love cheese biscuits? Add 1cup of shredded cheese to the flour and butter before adding the milk. The options are endless! Thanks, King Arthur Flour! =^..^=

Ingredients For king arthur easy self-rising biscuits

  • 2 c
    self-rising flour
  • 4 Tbsp
    cold butter
  • 3/4 c
    cold milk or buttermilk

How To Make king arthur easy self-rising biscuits

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly flour a breadboard or a section of countertop.
  • 2
    Measure the flour into a mixing bowl.
  • 3
    Grate the cold butter into the flour. Or you can cut it into thin slices. (If you think about freezing the butter for 10-15 minutes first, it works even better.)
  • 4
    Make a well in the center of the flour-butter mixture and add the mix. Stir just until it starts to come together. (You might need a few extra tablespoons of milk.)
  • 5
    Move the biscuit dough to the floured area and fold it over a few time. Add a little more flour if the dough is too sticky, but not too much.
  • 6
    Pat the dough into a rectangle about 1/2 inch thick.
  • 7
    Cut out biscuits with a knife (my choice) or a biscuit cutter.
  • 8
    Place on an ungreased baking sheet. I put space between them, but others like them touching. Your choice!
  • 9
    Bake at 425 degrees F. until lightly browned, 10-12 minutes or so. Serve immediately and watch them disappear! =^..^=
