Biscuit Recipe That’s Pretty Easy

This biscuit recipe can be thrown together really fast. It’s kind of quick and dirty because I used some knockoff Bisquick from Cub Foods. These go great with lots of different meals like fried chicken or could be eaten alone with some butter and gravy.

Alright so the first thing you need do to start this biscuit recipe is grab your large mixing bowl.

Next, get your measuring cups and whatever your biscuit mix is. If you don’t want to do it with a mix and want these to be more from scratch, switch out a mix for 2.5 cups all-purpose flour, 1/2 tablespoon baking powder, and 1/2 cup of cold butter for this biscuit recipe.

If you’re still going with a mix, measure out 2 1/4 cups of that into the large mixing bowl. Use a butter knife to smooth it out on top for this part of the biscuit recipe.

Following that, get some whole milk.

Once that’s in there, start mixing it up.

After the dough’s formed into a ball, setup a floured work surface. I just sprinkled some of the knockoff Bisquick on there.

Then, start kneading your dough on the work surface.

Knead it at least 10 times, working it around really good.

Once it’s ready, spread out the dough ball out so the slab of dough is about 1/2 inch thick and as even as you can make it. I’ll be honest, mine was kind of uneven for this biscuit recipe. Making sure each dough disk that you cut is the same is the best way to make sure the calorie estimate is actually accurate.

Take either a dough cutter or a 1 cup measuring cup with sharp edges and cut as many hockey pucks out of that as you can. You should be able to get about 6.

Once that’s taken care of, line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and then parchment paper. Now’s also a good time to pre-heat your oven to 450 degrees.

You should be able to get 6 biscuits out of this biscuit recipe and maybe have a little wimpy seventh biscuit.

Line those up on your baking sheet like so:

Bake those for 10-12 minutes.

It seemed like they were a little doughy in the middle still after 10 minutes, although maybe I just needed them to cool off more.

Anyway, here’s what this biscuit recipe should look like when it’s done:
